Aussie finger lime


#41

Thank’s! My only fruiting variety for now is fausterime that i love, but people say it’s the less good. This small purple bliss tree will only fruit on two years i think.
I have on the way one Crimson tide and will have more varieties. I just love finger limes! :yum:

Thank’s! The plant is not big, maby it will flower in two years…


#44

This is the colour of each variety…


#45

Looks like snowcones


#46

Yummy!!! :yum:


#47

Going by this chart I must have the ‘Invisible Man’ cultivar.


#48

Why, it’s white? There are some white varieties too. All are good!


#49

Nah, tons of pretty little buds and general growth, but the limes are not to be found anywhere. :blush:

That’s strage, usually they are self fertile… What’s the size of her?


#51

~7 feet, tripled in size in about 2 years, have to keep pruning the lower branches away from the sidewalk. I’m sure they will set next season as it’s getting a lot more sun at that height. It’s by an 8 feet fence.


#52

Then she neads another one to cross polinate… i think.


#53

My friend has the same cultivar that have fruited from the first year. His is in a totally sunny location. (Both were from Costco). Do they by any chance pollinate with other citrus? (I have all kinds).


#54

I don’t know you have to hask it on a aussie finger lime forum…


#55

Mine was about 5 years old before it fruited.

Sadly though it does not appear to have made it this year. My wife told me to find one and replace it. I mentioned that getting another may take years to fruit and she told me to get another big one. Then we looked online. I’m thinking it won’t be a this year thing… (Though that purple one looks great!!)

those finger lime hues make mardi gras beads look rather plain, lol

btw, i presume the cultivar i currently have is Collette


#57

Hi! Collette is very good, one that I want to have.


#58

`google the lime caviar company and you will find all of the varieties. One of the rarest is called Byron Sunrise . The purple bliss is still my favorite .
