Citrus australasica – Finger Lime (seed)


Rated 0 out of 5
(be the first to review)


Citrus australasica is a member of the Rutaceae family native to rainforests of northern NSW and SE QLD. Citrus australasica fruit are prized for their unusual looking 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 and naturally there are many different coloured variants; yellow, green, purple and red skinned and/or fleshed varieties. Our seeds are generally from the green skinned and fleshed type or a red flesh (pictured is Byron Sunrise). If you’ve got a preference, just add a note on checkout.

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.
