MOUNT WHITE LIME

Botanical Name: Microcitrus garrawayae
Description

Rare and thornless this native Australian lime resembles the fingerlime with it elongated finger-shaped fruits, but has broader leaves. Fruits are green skinned with greenish-white pulp. They have larger vesicles than fingerlimes and thicker skin with large oil glands like the round lime. Native to the foothills and upland rainforest of the Cape York Peninsula in Australia and Goodenough Island in Papua New Guinea. It grows in deciduous vine thickets as an under-storey shrub and has been recorded at a height of 15m. Due to its limited distribution, this species is now classified as rare and is protected.
