Finger Limes

Grower: Shanley Farms
 
Seasons/Availability: The Finger Limes are available August through January.
Known as the caviar of citrus, these tiny digit shaped limes are practically in a category all their own. Their aromatic skin appears in a triad of colors and the flesh holds caviar-shaped vesicles that pop crisply in your mouth with an assertively tart punch. The flavor is a lemon lime combination with herbaceous undertones. Fruit pulp color intensifies during the last phase of fruit maturity. Do not let the aged skin tone deter you. If you wish to get the strongest color possible from your fruit, harvest fully matured fruit.. <<Read more about this item>>
