Finger Lime varieties

    3 responses

TRClay starts with ...
Hello all,

I have been looking at planting one or two finger lime trees in my backyard, as I have a developing interest in native gardens and all that they offer. Unfortunately, I have never tried a finger lime and don't know where to start. Does anyone have any suggestions on where to find finger limes that I can taste in the Brisbane area? I'd like to be able to choose a variety that suits my interests and tastes.

Cheers.

I'm not in QLD so have no idea what these guys are like ... but "e;Boutique Citrus"e; are at 170 Bellthorpe West Road (www. boutiquecitrus.com.au).
The Lime caviar company might also be worth contacting (I believe they are near Brisbane).
Remember - different growing conditions (microclimates, soil, feeding regimes etc) will result in a subtly different flavour. Think of wine - a pinot grown in different regions tastes VERY different. So it is with most fruits.
If you're only looking at two you might want to get a pair of robust plants and practice grafting to increase the range you have!

Mt Annan Bot Garden had plants in the rainforest section outside the main entrance. You could also try to buy fruit.
Most light green skin types are fairly like limes, other skin and flesh colour types taste like other fruit, berries, or sourish etc.
