No Green Thumb Necessary for the Finger Lime

A rare gourmet lime that hails from Australia, the Finger Lime is a unique citrus specimen that produces tons of incredible fruit. Small, deep green leaves cover the tree, surrounded by cucumber-shaped fruit that hang in large numbers. The long, slender limes are unlike any you've ever seen. Slice one open and watch the pulp flow out from the rugged skin that protects it. Like small, spherical crystals, the tender vesicles inside are plump, juicy and filled with citrusy goodness. The tough climate conditions of the Australian coastal regions where Finger Limes were first grown make it suitable for a diversity of planting locations with little care or maintenance. It will even tolerate cooler weather down to a brief frost. Its compact, almost hedge-like stature make it an excellent candidate for tight spots in the garden or throughout the landscape.

The Caviar of Fruit

There's a reason the Finger Lime is gaining in popularity among the restaurant trade. Experienced chefs recognize the versatility and incredible flavor these limes add to a variety of dishes. Nicknamed 'the Caviar of Fruit', the tart, juicy beads contained within the Finger Lime have an uncanny resemblance to the world's most famous delicacy, except this caviar is bursting with unrivaled citrus taste. That mouth-popping experience works wonders for salads, desserts and just about anything your curious culinary mind can conjure up. Feast your eyes on the crystals, and your palette on some unforgettable Finger Lime dishes.

Whether it's Finger Lime Ice Cream, Oysters with Lime Caviar, or even a Finger Lime Gin Fizz, if you're a citrus fan, the Finger Lime tree will point you in the right direction. Order yours today.

Fruit starting the first week after receiving
Packed extremely well. Planted in a 6 Gallon pot on my enclosed patio and it seems to be thriving well. Already have 2 small limes on my tree after the first week. The tree is only a little over a foot tall so I don't expect them to grow very large but amazed at fruit production already

I bought the FLT about 2 months ago. I live in Fayetteville, NC (zone 8) . It's an expensive little thing. It's not shipped from South Carolina though. It's imported from California. Which make me wonder if we can grow it here in NC.

It had two finger limes on it when it arrived and now it has 5 of them. However, it is a VERY slow growing tree. I don't want to take a risk of planting it in the ground. It's sitting on my porch for the summer and I'll bring it inside for winter.

Over all I'm impressed so far. We will see......

Planting & Care



It's Easy to Plant & Care for Your Australian Finger Lime Tree



Step 1: Dig Your Hole


Select a site with full to partial sun and moist or well drained soil for your Australian Finger Lime Tree.

First, dig each hole so that it is just shallower than the root ball and at least twice the width.

Then loosen the soil in the planting hole so the roots can easily break through.

Use your shovel or try dragging the points of a pitch fork along the sides and bottom of the hole.

Planting & Care

Step 2: Place Your Plant


Next, separate the roots of your Australian Finger Lime Tree gently with your fingers and position them downward in the hole.

The top of the root flare, where the roots end and the trunk begins, should be about an inch above the surrounding soil.

Then make sure the plant is exactly vertical in the hole.

To make it just right, use a level.

Step 3: Backfill Your Hole


As you backfill the hole, apply water to remove air pockets.

Remove debris like stones and grass and completely break up any dirt clumps.

Water your Australian Finger Lime Tree again after the transplant is complete.

something different

It looks unique and meaty. We are looking forward to getting some finger limes this year. Pick the fruit as desired, which will minimize the probability of spoiled fruit in the refrigerator. Keeping our fingers (pun intended) crossed.
