Very rare brown finger lime with red 'citrus caviar' inside! Limited stock.
Finger limes are considered a gourmet bushfood and are sought after by top restaurants around the world. Finger limes are a hardy shrub to small tree and in cultivation plants usually grow around 2 to 5 metres but can be pruned to a manageable height to make them easy to harvest.
Finger limes are as rare as a hen’s teeth and the brown finger lime is even rarer. We only have these in limited stock. This is your chance to secure this amazing plant before its sold out. The plant is 3 years old and grafted. Very hardy and frost tolerant. Plants are super healthy and expect to be fruiting soon.
