Finger Lime – Green Sapphire
Citrus australasica – Green Sapphire
Green Sapphire has an endearing willowy habit with soft, light coloured foliage. It produces large green finger limes that bulge with juicy, glistening green citrus pearls.
It performs best in full sun and enjoys a warm sheltered position in a free draining soil with plenty of organic matter. Protect from frost.
Trees will begin to produce fruit in the 2nd autumn after they’ve been planted.
Can reach 4-6 metres high but more likely to reach 2-3 m in Perth.
