This is a seedling selection from our grafted varieties. They have a thin skin that ranges in colour from green, yellow, red, purple to even a black. The inner cells are cylindrical balls filled with lime juice. Very hardy. The bushy thorny foliage is a perfect protective habitat for small birds to nest in addition to their fruits.

Customer Comments on Finger Lime
I have 3 of these all in pots of sandy loam 1 from Bunnings and fruited almost immediately now flowering again the others Daleys Green Saphire and rainforest pearl struggled in geenhouse over winter but are now budding.water weekly winter daily summer | David Jones - Sylvaterre, Vic 13-Sep-2018
I have 3 finger limes, one is named and the others, quite different growth, are from Daleys seedling choice. Watch the sun it's hot! Mine were all potted under citrus. Nearly lost one. Pruned heavily, moved to half sun and watered well. Survived. | Bron Ramey - Beresfield, NSW 17-Jan-2017
