Australian Finger Lime Tree – Microcitrus australasica
Very unusual, ancient form of citrus. The Australian Finger Lime tree is a slow growing dwarf with tiny, densely packed leaves. Fruit is oddly shaped like a banana. To harvest, split the pods open and out spring hundreds of tiny lime juice-filled bubbles! They separate easily and are fantastic sprinkled in salads, pies or cocktails. Everbearing trees in warm climates. Self-fertile. Zones 9-10.
