Finger Lime – Rainforest Pearl
Citrus australasica – Rainforest Pearl
Fragrant thin green skin blushed with crimson. Fruit opens to reveal red glistening citrus pearls bursting with juicy limey flavours. Originating from the understory, Rainforest Pearl enjoys dappled light. It does perform best in full sun, in a warm protected location. Needs to be planted in a free draining soil with plenty of organic matter. Protect from frost.
Trees will begin to produce fruit from the 2nd autumn after they’ve been planted. Given they receive attention and nurture.
Can reach 4-6 metres high but more likely to reach 2-3 m in Perth.
