Introduction

The Yellow Finger lime is notable for being one of the largest known species of finger lime, each bursting yellow balls full of sweet lime juice with strong lemon nodes. Our yellow finger limes were handpicked by our team in Barcelona, Spain.

History

Finger limes are native to Australia, specifically to the rainforests in Southeast Queensland and Northern New South Wales. They used to be plenty of them in the Australian tropical rainforests, but once European colonization arrived in Australia their numbers were reduced dramatically due to deforestation caused by Europeans.  

Regions

Finger limes have been introduced in certain tropical regions of the world but the top producer is Australia. Significant amounts are produced in California, Italy, Guatemala, Morocco, and Spain. 

Flavours & Texture

Finger limes have a citrus aroma with a tangy, sweet, and slightly sour, flavour, the yellow finger lime has very notable lemon-lime nodes. Most people describe their taste as similar to sweet limes, but with less sourness.

Preparation

The best way to open one of these fruits is to slice at its centre and then squeeze one of the halves. When you apply pressure, little balls of pulp will spill out. These tiny juice bubbles easily separate from one another and pop when chewed. They are usually eaten raw but they can be used in desserts such as in cakes.

Nutritional Value

Finger lime is very low in calories but it contains a good amount of fibre and a high amount of vitamin C.
