Citrus australasica – Finger Lime (seed)
Finger Limes are an Australian native Citrus, naturally found in rainforest and regrowth in NSW and QLD. Citrus australasica fruit are prized for their unusual finger shaped fruit which contain tiny juice-filled vesicles, looking somewhat like caviar. Several new varieties have been bred in Australia in the last 2 decades; naturally there are yellow, green and red skinned and fleshed varieties. Our seeds are generally from the green skinned and fleshed type.
Care and Cultivation of Citrus australasica
Sow Finger Lime seeds under the surface of a good quality seed raising mix and keep moist until germination in 14-28 days. Citrus australasica plants like a full sun to part shade position with adequate moisture and regular fertiliser, just like normal Citrus. Easy to care for and drought hardy once established. Keep them pruned to a manageable size.
