“I was very pleased with the Murcott when I opened that box (you guys sure have the packaging thing down!!!), but I must say, the Dancy and Clementine trees were absolutely outstanding both in their foliage and their structure. Like perfect mini-trees!”

Australian Finger Lime

 

austrailian_finger_limeMicrocitrus australasica

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.
