Botanical Name: Citrus Australasica
Fruit Characteristics: Finger limes are small, elongated citrus fruits (finger looking) with a thin skin of various colours that is semi-smooth with a leathery texture.
They have a unique and delicious pulp, that consists of many small pearls that are firm, slightly sticky, juicy, and crisp.
When eaten, the pearls create a popping sensation with a burst of sweet-tart flavours in the mouth.
Finger limes bear a minty, citrus-forward aroma with a tangy, sweet, and slightly sour, floral, lemon-lime flavour.
