Behold the caviar of lime! These oblong Red Finger Limes cascade translucent “citrus pearls” of vibrant red onto any tropical plate and into any citrus-lover’s heart.
The free-flowing individual beads of citrus flesh are popular for gourmet dining, used for sour, bright, astringent toppings on any lime-loving hordevours. Native to sub-tropical rainforests of South-East Queensland, these Australian blasts of tangy flesh are loaded with tart flavor and minty fresh aroma. Traditionally considered a specialty crop “bush tucker”, the Red Finger Lime was rare and often merely foraged in the few places it was grown. Due to its uproar of popularity among chefs, an increase in tree production has grown the number of trees to reach demand.
