FINGER LIME - TASTY GREEN

Fingerlime tasty GreenBotanical Name: Microcitrus australasica
Description

A long green skinned fruit with clear vesicles. Tasty Green fruits for a long season and has a delicious lime flavour. They are not as sour as Tahitian limes and may be eaten straight off the tree. A delicate but spikey rainforest tree that offers fruits with a distinctive citrus flavour to sweet or savoury dishes. The juicy cells, similar in appearance to caviar, are a delightful surprise in salad dressings.

Finger Lime - Tasty Green 10/10

Ok I so I saw this docomentry on Native Australian Fruits. I saw what they used the fruits for and just had to have a go at growing these. I was told a couple of years ago that they won't grow in the south as it get so cold down here. Recently however, I saw some grafted finger limes tree and did some research on them. Turns out, the grafted varieties may be able to survive the cold so I went a head with the purchase. 

These trees can get quiet large and can give you up to 20kgs of limes if given the space and right conditions. I just hope to get a kilogram or 2 a year :)  and to be honest, we don't have the space for a 5m tree or they will be kept in pots.

I planted mine with the same potting mix I used on my other limes and lemones. It's been 3 months cold wintery months and they seem to be doing fine! No leaf loss, no yellowing, no dying branches. Finger cross they will contine to grow and even grive me fruits!

Update (After Winter): I noticed that the plants are producing heaps of red flower buds from the axils of the leaves. :D

The finger lime gets a bit too much shade at the moment trying to get it to grow up to the light.

We had a most productive finger lime but the builders destroyed it.
