Finger Lime - Ricks Red

Planted like a normal citrus in a big draining pot. Absolutely covered in flowers and little fruit starting at end of July. Should be ready for oysters by Christmas! | Nick - Fremantle, WA 21-Jul-2016

Comments: - The red browed finches nest in it dense sikey foliage every year. It is the native food source of the citrus butterflies, including the Dainty Swallowtail. Small frogs like the protection of the thorns as well.  Fabulously product tree, I have been picking fruits for months and selling them at the local farmers market.

I purchased a green variety finger lime and just had to get the red when I saw it for sale. They look so pretty and would be a great asset to my kitchen. Just imagine those bright red individual pulp in a drink or on a Thai dish! 

So far they withstand the worse of the cold winter of Melbourne and don't seem to mind the wind or slight frost. I used the same potting mix I used on all my limes and lemons trees. I gave it heaps of pea straw mulch as well. I am really looking forward to receiving some fruit from this plant.

VF1's Edible Fruits

This is a dark-red skin/red vesicle variety. I love the tang when the vesicles break in your mouth. Very tasty in a G&T!

Flowering prolifically late winter and has set heaps of fruit.

Have noticed that my finger-limes seem to get magnesium deficiency chlorosis easier than my other citrus, especially after heavy-flowering/fruit-set - they now get a  small regular dose of epsom salts, and are looking good and retaining more fruit.
