"Citrus caviar", the lime has small pulp & juice pearls. By far the most exotic citrus variety with a huge following. This bush-like tree is very popular and difficult to find. Great tree for container gardening.

Technical Specs for Your Tree:

This tree is grafted, using proprietary micro-budding technology. It is not grown from cuttings or from a seed

Rootstock: Brazilian Sour Orange or Citrange-22

non-GMO, not organically raised

Height: 12-inches tall or greater (not including root system)

Stem Diameter: 4mm or greater

Age: ~6 months in age or older

Pot size: 2.5 quarts plastic pot (which is referred to as 1-gallon in standard nursery nomenclature)

Start of fruit production: after one year of consistent growth

Consistent fruit harvests: after two years of consistent growth

Container: Your tree can stay in the pot it comes in for one year. Re-potting can be done at any time, we suggest 5-gallon to 15-gallon pot sizes with drainage holes

Watering: A newly shipped tree needs its soil drenched daily for 4 weeks. Overwatering is not a concern if the container has drainage holes and the tree is outdoors.

Indoor growing: watering needs to be adjusted, more info in our care guide.

Climate Control: Needs to be protected from strong winds or temperatures under 40 degrees F.

Light: We recommend the tree be kept outdoors for full sunlight. If is kept indoors, we recommend a full-spectrum grow light, window light will not suffice as this is a tropical tree. If the tree is kept indoors without a full spectrum grow light, we cannot say with confidence that the tree will survive or thrive.

Nutrition: To thrive, your tree needs proper fertilizer three times yearly.

Your tree can spend its life in a pot. We do NOT recommend planting the tree in the ground if there are any freezing temperatures unless you live in USDA Plant Hardiness Zone 9a, 9b or 10a. Even then your tree must be protected from temperatures below freezing.

Nursery: TDA certified nursery in Hargill, Texas. We do not purchase trees from any other nurseries to re-sell.

I would never order from a different supplier

US citrus has good quality trees! An Australian finger lime can take years upon years to bare fruit. I was super excited to see two fruits on my tree, upon arrival. If you do not receive a tree with fruit all ready on it, I wouldn’t be discouraged. I have 5 trees that came from US citrus, and all of them have flowered. All but one had fruited. This one tree happened to be an orange tree. I am in zone 5b.. this one will be a challenge to get the fruit. I highly encourage you to submit your order with US citrus. They really do have a great quality product

Beautiful tree

I learned about finger limes online and looked for a reputable nursery. US Citrus staff where gracious, professional and personal. I recommended a friend and she is ecstatic as well. 10 out of 10, will buy from again.

I couldn't be more happy with my purchase. The packaging was excellent and both plants arrived healthy. After re-potting and setting out in the yard I was surprised to see two fruit on one of my plants! Location is the suburbs of Houston Texas.

Even the packaging for shipping is done right!!!

I am from south Texas and saw this small company from down south I figure I would give them the business. I am a chef so small details are very important to me . Wow packaging for shipping is nothing like have seen from any other vendor that ships trees plants herbs to me. The tree look in great shape and very healthy. Can wait to harvest some finger limes from it to add to my fresh oysters on my food truck as a special. Chef Mario Austin,Tx

Australian finger lime

The tree showed up 3 days after ordering. I can tell that the people at US Citrus really care about making sure their trees arrive in excellent condition by the care taken with packaging. The tree looks very healthy. I don’t have a single negative thing to mention about my US Citrus experience. Great tree, great service, great company! I will definitely buy more trees from US Citrus.

Cute plant

So far, I am loving my Australian Finger Lime tree. It came extremely well packaged with transplant and care instructions. I have not transplanted it into its final pot yet since we are experiencing some freezing nights still. I will be buying from US Citrus again.
