Finger Lime

General information:

Finger Limes range in size from 1-3 inches long and are about 3/4" in circumference; a micro-citrus originally discovered growing wild in Australia and introduced for growing in California. The aromatic outside skin is a triad of colors - mostly brown with green tinges on smooth skin. Inside, the juice vesicles are 3mm in size and light green in color; when removed from the skin, they look like caviar. Generally seedless but odd seeds do occur.

The flavor is a lemon lime combination with herbaceous undertones. Imagine eating a citrus pop-rock! These are great compliments to seafood or any other application where one would use a citrus accent.
