Known as 'citrus caviar', this variety is coveted by culinary masters. It is the most challenging citrus variety to grow and it can fetch prices of over $100/lbs!

Australian Finger Lime Fruit:

  • colorful, small pulp, with caviar-like vesicles
  • may extract the pulp by squeezing one end of the fruit after the other end is cut off
  • often used as a colorful garnish for fine cuisine, cocktails, salads or seafood
  • firm fruit, 6-12cm in length
  • thin-skinned, with shorter shelf life than other citrus varieties (~3 weeks)
  • easily sunburned 
  • harvesting while wet will rupture the fruit vesicles and cause bruising
