Australian Red Lime (Citrus australasica hybrid)
This rare Australian Red Lime (previously called Red Finger Lime) is an exciting addition for any citrus lover. At only 1’ in height, the Australian Red Lime produces burgundy-red, 2” long fruit that have tiny juice vesicles inside. The flavorful juice vesicles pop in your mouth or are used in salads or drinks to provide a zesty lime taste. Australian Red Lime’s unusual color and compact growth habit makes it a wonderful potted plant. The leaves are small and the flowers are sweetly scented which is highly unusual and not your typical citrus aroma. Sweet flowers emerge in springtime and fruit follows that ripens red just in time for the holidays. This is a grafted plant that blooms and fruits sooner.

  1. Easy to grow Review by John
    How do you rate this product?

    This is one of my favorite plants. I got the smaller size in the mail maybe late Spring of 2017. It had some growth during the summer and after the solstice it has gone bananas. Also it seems really resilient- I’ve had both fungus gnats and spider mites but my citrus seem to shrug them off. Same is holding true for the palestine lime, another favorite. (Posted on 1/25/2018)
