Finger Lime

Finger Limes are small, elongated citrus fruits, with unique and delicious pulp, that consists of many small pearls, also know as citrus caviar!

Easy to grow and they produce prolific fruit over the warm months.

When eaten, the pearls create a popping sensation with a burst of sweet-tart flavours in the mouth. Very popular garnish in cocktails and clear alcoholic drinks such as gin. Also delicious with grilled fish or even in a summer salad.

Collette has black - brown finger limes (6 - 9cm long) with bright green pulp when fully ripe. It is a vigorous and fast growing variety with an open canopy and long strong branches, and reaches 2m high.

D’Emerald produces long, slender, dark coloured Finger Limes. The citrus pearls within are sparkling emerald green, tangy, juicy and easy to extract. This dense growing shrub grows to 3m and is ideal for creating hedges. It fruits all year and is quite prolific.

Green Giant (or Tasty Green) is one of the largest Finger Lime fruit sizes (10 - 13cm long). It is a vigorous, dense grower which will flower and produce fruit all year round. Plenty of water will ensure good sized fruit.

Judy’s Everbearing Finger Lime produces excellent crops of tasty, dark green skinned fruit, full of glistening citrus pearls. Originating from the understory, this variety tolerates dappled light, but does best in full sun, in a warm protected position.

Pink Ice is a popular commercial variety with large fruit and regular fruit set. Grows in a wide range of climates but cooler climates produce more colour tin the fruit (pinker blush). With medium vigour and an open canopy, it is great addition to any garden. The taste is mild and slightly bitter, with a grapefruit-like finish. Perfect in gin & tonics!

Note: The size of your tree is determined by many factors including soil type, sunlight, nutrition availability and overall health.

There are 2 special care requirements for our trees.
1. Keep the tree balanced! Check your tree regularly and prune back any branches that are outgrowing the others.
2. Remove Rootstock. Each fruit will be marked with white paint when you receive your tree. If you see any other growth coming from the tree trunk, remove this as this is rootstock growth.

All Citrus Fruit Salad Trees can be espaliered. This method saves space and provides extra support for heavy cropping. Click HERE to watch our video on espaliering.
