Finger Lime Seeds (Citrus australasica)

Price for Package of 3 seeds.

The Australian native citrus! This plant grows naturally as  a thorny shrub of subtropical and dry rainforest in Queensland and New South Wales. However, it can be grown farther south, I have it growing in Melbourne. Finger limes may have a range of coloured fruit - green, brown, even pink. The pulp of the finger lime has been likened to a citrus caviar, with the same kind of texture as the fishy kind. It has many applications in cooking and gourmets have been recently exploring this as a resource. Can be used in home made jam, pickles and marmalades. Needs a fairly protected, shady position, particularly in colder areas such as southern Australia.
