Citrus garrawayi Thornless Finger Lime is an Australian native lime that resembles the fingerlime with it’s elongated finger-shaped fruits. But it has some key differences. It has broader greener leaves. No thorns. And fruits that are green skinned with a greenish-white pulp. They have larger vesicles (the Bub,y zesty lime bits inside the fruit), than fingerlimes and thicker skin with large oil glands like the round lime.

A fantastic fruitful Australian Native Lime to add to the garden or a pot.
