Product Description

Unique, Prolific Lime Tree Variety

The Australian Finger Lime Tree is compact, adaptable, and produces one-of-a-kind fruit containing flavor-packed beads. Bush-like and highly productive, it can thrive in a wide range of climates.

Because it's low maintenance, this lime tree variety will grow with little hassle. Its fruit, a rare type of lime, is a unique citrus that many consider to be gourmet. The long, slender limes are unlike any you've ever seen. If you slice one open, you'll see tiny, spherical crystals of pulp flow out. The fruit's flesh is plump, juicy, and filled with that classic citrus flavor.

This lime hails from Australia, a country known for its intense climate conditions. Finger Limes were first grown for their adaptability in maintenance and planting. Despite originating in a hotter region, the Australian Finger Lime can also tolerate cooler weather, including a brief frost. And, its dense, hedge-like stature makes it perfect for small spaces and tight spots in your garden.

The Finger Lime Tree delivers versatile fruit with many culinary uses. Grab this exotic tree before we run out of stock!

Planting & Care

Planting: Choose a location where your tree is going to get plenty of sunlight. If your winter temperatures drop consistently below 40 degrees, plant your tree in a container that can easily be brought outside in the summer. 

Then, fill your pot with soil, place your tree, and backfill the rest of the soil. Finally, water to settle the roots.

Watering: After watering, generally about once or twice weekly, allow the top 2 to 3 inches of the soil to dry out completely before watering again. Mulching can help retain the soil moisture and also combat competing grasses/weeds. When you water, stop once you see it escaping the drainage holes at the base of the pot.

Fertilizing: Feed your lime tree during the warmer spring and summer seasons with a citrus specific fertilizer once every six weeks. During the fall and winter season, ease back to fertilizing once every 2 to 3 months. Once the tree has matured a bit, you can skip the cold season fertilization. 

Pruning: Make 45-degree angle cuts to remove dead or crossing limbs. After the tree fruits, remove any dead wood.

Pollination: Though this tree is self-fertile, for indoor trees, you can pollinate by hand by taking a small paintbrush and sticking it into the center of the bloom. Swirl it around and collect the pollen on the brush. Go to the next bloom and repeat the process until every bloom has been treated.
