*Dwarf Australian Finger Lime Tree
*(image is for illustrative purposes only, actual tree may look different)
Finger limes, are also known as “the caviar of citrus” to top chefs worldwide! These unique finger size pieces of citrus fruit are probably more familiar to our friends “down under” in Australia from where they originate. The small, round, firm, “cells” of pulp inside the fruit do resemble caviar, and even burst open when bitten. They can and are used like caviar on top of sushi and is a favorite garnish topped on oysters. The lemon-lime flavor lends itself to many other recipes (i.e. cocktails, salads, curries,) as well as being used in marmalades. So the next time you want to make a big impression with your culinary skills, maybe you should... “let your fingers do the walking” with finger limes from your own tree!
PLEASE READ PRIOR TO ORDERING: To allow for a shorter amount of time that your tree will be under the "stress of shipping", these young trees are shipped directly from our supplier to you. As soon as your tree is shipped, you will receive a tracking number in order to track your tree.
Also...when prepared for shipping, the soil is removed from the tree’s roots and they are carefully packed with moist wood shavings in a plastic bag. So, bare-rooted citrus trees should be planted in a 12-14” container, or in the ground and watered upon arrival.
And finally...due to USDA restrictions, citrus trees cannot be shipped to: Arizona, Texas and Florida.
