Finger Limes are a wild cultivar native to Southeast Queensland and New South Wales, Australia. Once a popular indigenous food for the Aboriginals, Europeans deforestation devastated the land where wild citrus trees once grew in abundance. Fortunately, grafted trees have made their way to surrounding pockets of the country, as well as to California, where we source ours.
Finger limes take 3 - 5 years before bearing fruit, and typically only produce every other season. They are thought to have the widest range of color variation within any citrus species, ranging from green to red to black. Their pulp, which also ranges in color, is prized for its caviar-like texture, and its flavor is extremely bright, with slight bitterness.
We absolutely love finger limes, as their internal pearls are the perfect textural addition to anything needing some pop and shimmer.
Available in 2oz, 1/2lb, or 1lb increments.
