Finger lime time.

Not a finger lime. It's a Sunrise lime, a hybrid between the finger lime and a calamondin.
I was very excited this morning to finally get my hands on some finger lime fruit. It's very tasty, the little vesicles of juice are crunchy and pop in your mouth to release a little lemony burst.
The fruit and some other products were being sold at the Western Farmers Market at FERN at one of the stalls there.
I was also happy to recognise the man selling them was a fellow I met a few years ago at TAFE doing a bit of a bush regeneration course. It had been his intention back then to get a bush food business going, so I was extremely happy to see it had come to fruition.
Also exciting is that they will be selling the trees in about 18 months time. They had some quandong trees for sale and jars of bush fruit marmalade and relish. Fantastic.
This is their website...marvick native farms.

Hi,

Good to see the fruits of the east are making there way all over Australia, if you are interested take a look at what we have been doing in the Hunter Valley with our Finger Limes.

Also, Daleys Fruit trees on the North Coast of NSW is a great place to purchase many varieties of Finger Lime trees.
