Enjoy Growing One of the Most Unique Citrus Trees

Australian Finger Lime grows more compact, making it a great choice to be grown in a container. Just bring it indoors during cold weather in zones 4 through 7 and keep it near a sunny window.

The Australian Finger Lime is referred to as the caviar of fruit because of the tart, round beads inside the lime.  Small, pink-white flowers appear from November into February, followed by fruit ready to pick from May into July. If you bring your Australian Finger Lime tree indoors for winter, the blooms will fill the air with an amazing citrus aroma.

This is a citrus tree that is known for producing a lot of fruit. Australian Finger Lime trees are self-fertile.

Do NOT buy a tree if only the height is listed. Call the nursery and ask what size container the tree is in. It can make a huge difference. We purchased a Mayer Lemon citrus tree listed as 3 to 4 feet from 2 nurseries. One came in a tiny 4 inch pot, the other in a 2 gallon container. Needless to say, the tree in the larger container was much better with more branches and a bigger trunk.
