Keep up the Good Work!
“I ordered a 2 year old Variegated Pink Lemon and Seville Sour Orange. They arrived yesterday in perfect condition. I have never had a citrus plant I ordered arrive with such vigorous growth, yet be so carefully packed. Keep up the good work!”
Australian Finger Lime
The Australian Finger Lime is actually an understory tree native to the rainforests of Northern New South Wales, and Queensland, Australia. The tree is thorny, with small leaves and a delicate habit that belies its toughness in the landscape. The petite, elongated fruits ripen in fall or winter in California, and have a flavor reminiscent of true limes. The fruit is sometimes referred to as "citrus caviar" because the small round interior vesicles pop in your mouth with tart lime flavor. Chefs the world over are finding creative uses for Australian Finger Limes, which add unique texture and a special "zing" to dishes.
