hello, I am interested in your finger lime trees and wondering how big they are, as in how tall the actual plant is and how old. Thanks! From: ALPHINGTON VIC

Perhaps about 1.5 years old. Please refer to the picture in the image gallary on the finger lime page for sizes of the actual plant. #FingerLime2160

Comments: - These little babies have only been going since late 1013. These native finger limes don't grow true from seed and could be crossed with anything, there was a massive range of citrus varieties where they came from so fingers crossed I may have some exclusives.
