Finger Limes are a member of the citrus family found in northern New South Wales and south-eastern Queensland. The edible pulp is a dense mass of individual pearl-like cells which, when bitten, burst open giving a wild infusion of tangy lime. The pulp is available in myriad colours making it a unique visual and textural addition to your meal or drink, as well as adding a fresh citrus flavour.
