Finger Limes

Finger Limes

Finger limes, also known as caviar limes, are a small citrus fruit native to Australia that have a unique appearance and flavor. They are named for their elongated shape, which resembles that of a finger, and their small, bead-like pulp, which looks similar to caviar.

The fruit is typically around 3-4 cm in length and comes in a range of colors, including green, yellow, pink, and red. The pulp of the finger lime is juicy and contains small, individual vesicles that pop in the mouth, releasing a burst of tart and tangy flavor. The flavor is often described as a cross between lemon and lime, with some variations having notes of grapefruit or mandarin.

Finger limes are often used as a garnish in cocktails and dishes, adding both flavor and texture to the dish. They are also commonly used in desserts, such as sorbets or meringues, as well as in savory dishes like seafood or salads.

From a nutritional standpoint, finger limes are a good source of vitamin C and dietary fiber. They are low in calories and contain no fat or cholesterol.

When selecting finger limes, look for fruit that is firm, plump, and heavy for its size, with no signs of browning or mold. They can be stored in the refrigerator for up to a week, but it's best to use them as soon as possible to ensure their flavor and texture are at their best.
