Microcitrus australasica

The Emma finger lime is a very large black skinned fruit with vesicles that range from clear to a pinkish blush. It produces a heavy crop of fruits over a long period. The fruits can be frozen successfully without destroying the fruits flavour or texture on thawing, thus allowing us to have access to the fruits all year round.
