Customer Tips & Reviews Finger Lime
Finger Lime - Grafted
2nd season in and our grafted tree is looking fine, we took all the fruit off in the first year (force of habit) and have just been eating this seasons with family at lunch, we live in Southern Tasmania
A very hardy plant great for planting in verges - The Spikes stop the dogs & possums! Also has fabulous dark purple new growth which then turns from light to dark green as it matures.
Have just planted a rainforest pearl. Growing well with Nat dynamic lifter in hole and mulched with cane trash

I have a miniature goat free ranging in my garden. Surprisingly she does not touch any of my citrus plants nor my finger limes! I currently have at least 20 different citrus and finger limes. Intending now to plant many more.
I have been growing my finger lime in a pot , protected area in the open, and it doesn't suffer from frost, which we get frequently in the central highlands of Victoria, it has fruited and this season has 25 so far on a plant is 1 meter tall.
Because they are so spiny and the growth is dense they are great havens for wildlife - we have birds nesting in ours, tiny tree frogs, and a few of the usual things that like feeding on citrus. All this, and the bonus of the fruit.
We grow them successfullly in Kangaroo Valley NSW Sth Coast. They fruit prolifically and I have seen them for big $$$$per kg at the Sydney markets. Very much in demand for dressings and boutique restaurants.

I have over 20 fingerlime grafted plants and what i have found is to pott hem in a 28 ltr pot with perlite for an inch at the bottom and use the debco rose mix and add some citrus slow release this works well to get them to flower within 12 months !
I have grown my Finger Lime both in a pot then in the ground in the inner west in Sydney. It flowered and fruuited well, but the wind will blow all the flowers off in August if not protected.
Planted tubestock April 2009. Didn't grow one cm until March 2010, but has almost doubled it's volume in 2 months. Plant is well drained. Climate is humid, high rainfall autumn-winters, dry summers, 20-30 degrees year round.
I have grown my grafted fingerlime for 2 years now. They may tolerate frosts but don't like strong wind. The only flowering I had was blown away 12 months ago and nothing since. Any suggestions appreciated.

I had 35 examples and my dog and my rat eat them all
Debra - I have a number of finger limes in the ground in your area if you would like to have a look - firstname.lastname@example.org
Debra I know of several in Baffle Ck area, some several years old and producing. I had one in Miriam Vale that stood up to light frosts without problems so Bundy should be OK
I recently saw an article about this fruit on television and I am really interested in trying to grow (one) to start. I live in Bundaberg Qld and have heard they are really hard to grow? Can anyone give me advice on planting and variety to plant.
Can anyone give me information on growing these trees in Canberra. What would be the best variety and what special needs would they have?
I live in canberra and bought some finger lime trees last year. They dont seem to mind the cold, had 2 plants out in the open and they encountered a few frosts but it didnt seem to affect them at all.
I have 3 finger limes that are growing vigorously and have started to bear fruit at 18 months old. At least as fast growing as normal citrus and do not even get the leaf damage normal citrus suffer in Winter here. We are cooler than Melbourne.
