What is an Organic Finger Lime?
- Known as “citrus caviar,” the Finger Lime is prized for its caviar-like bubbles of tangy citrus that pop on your tongue. It has a tart, lemony-lime flavor with slight herbaceous notes. This finger-shaped micro-citrus is naturally grown and found in Australia’s coastal and rainforest areas, but is now grown in California in limited quantities during the summer and fall.
