With dedicated, twice yearly pruning it is possible to restrict tree height and spread to 3-4m. This variety is subject to Plant Breeder Rights (PBR).The foliage is delicate on young trees, and our potted plants are known for their older leaves to turn yellow and drop during transport to conserve energy. This is not a problem long term. With care and acclimatisation they will bounce back

Finger Lime - Red

I love finger limes and wished to add another variety to our collection. The plant arrived securely and carefully packed with instructions on how to care for it as we transitioned it from box to garden to into the garden.

Finger Lime - Red

Came in the Australian post packaged very well with no damage at all, it was planted out straight away and has done better than expected with minimal attention apart from a good quality stake and a handful of citrus food and our own compost mix.
