Our little Australian Fingerlime tree was heavily loaded with fruit this year (2014). In this photo they are just starting to ripen and fall. I've pruned it to a roughly cylindrical form, like a citrus Christmas tree about seven feet high and four feet in diameter at the base. Several branches like this one produced a big yield, around 25 pounds of limes in one season. The thorns are plentiful and painfully sharp, we don't dare try to actually pick fruit but instead gather ripe fingerlimes from the ground around the tree after they've fully ripened and naturally fallen. Similar to traditional Limes in taste but not as sharp and sour plus a hint of floral aroma or tropical after taste. Under-ripe fruit can have a minor turpentine note. The caviar like form and pop-rock bursting sensation is also part of the pleasure and fun.
