Finger Lime (Grafted) 9/10

Mel2's Edible Fruits
Update: 3323 days 1hrs

Comments: -

Finger limes have been around for a long time, talking to the old timers but it has only recently become trendy to have these tiny caviar like bursts of citrus in your salad or on your oysters. Yum!

The shrub/tree is a prickly little bugger but well worth the scratches. I heard they're the only citrus that will freeze without bursting the little cells!! Mine came from the Aspley Hypermarket, Qld last year 09 and gave me 3 beauties.It wasnt labelled as any type but it's cells are a lovely pale pink. No aphids or other suckers like it but the grasshoppers dined on it a bit in summer.
