The native finger lime is variable large shrub to small tree, which is very thorny, and bears cylindrical fruit. The fruit comes in different colours, from green, yellow, brown, black, red, orange, and purple. Height range is from 2 to 7 metres tall. Finger limes are now gourmet food, and have been called ‘lime caviar’ for the tangy globular pulp. Suits tropical to temperate climates, in well drained soils. Slow growing. This plant was formerly known as Microcitrus australasica.
Note- this should not be planted where the thorny habit can cause harm
