Pots: Use a commercial potting mix and avoid excessive use of animal manure and commercial organic fertilizers - this may cause root burn and potential root disease.

 

Harvesting: The tree will begin properly producing fruit at 3-4 years old. They tend to fruit between late March to May.

 

Growing Conditions: Finger Limes prefer a well drained soil with a PH of 6.5 to 7.5 Dig a hole 2 to 3 times the size of the Finger Lime pot. Break up the soil in the base of the planting hole and mix in compost and slow release fertilizer. Slit both sides of the bag and do not disturb the roots when removing the bag. Lower the tree into the planting hole ensuring the soil level of the plant is the same level of the soil prior to excavation. Water well with a solution of seaweed or other soil conditioners. 

Position: Finger lime prefer a semi-shaded position.

Maintenance: Fertilize in spring and summer with a general citrus fertilizer. Folio feed is also recommended. Finger Limes are susceptible to scale and sooty mould. Use a neem oil to control if this occurs.

Size: 2 metres (average) - can be kept shorter in pots with regular pruning.

Finger Limes

After hearing about “Finger Limes” I wanted to plant some in my backyard. (I live in a Melbourne suburb) and your site was my best option to get them. I bought two different varieties. They arrived promptly and very well wrapped. I planted them in my back yard and kept an eye on them. Both plants now have flowers on them which made me very happy. This is within 8 months of getting them.
I have bought other plants from Melbourne bushfood. Their service is very good with very prompt delivery and very well wrapped.
I wonder what I’ll get next.

Efficient safe delivery

Received an order of two finger limes. The small trees were delivered interstate. They were well packed and arrived quickly and safely. They were healthy and of high quality. Separate care instructions by email were easy to follow. They trees have now been planted into pots. Now to see if I can keep them alive.
