If I'm missing some info here, please let me know, this is my very first offer on the forum. Any Q's, please fire away.

I note there has been some interest in our local native finger limes lately. My crop is on it's last legs, so rather than let them go to waste, I'd like to offer seeds for trade if anyone is interested. PM is good.

This is variety "Alstonville", a dark skinned, yellow to pink vesicles, not too sour, I can eat it out of hand and I am a sweet tooth, crunchy lime flavoured citrus caviar.

 :) Hello.

Would you have more colors available, later on?

I am excited to try this but already have a few seedlings from a pink variety.

There's an interesting CV from a local propagator called "Crimson Tide" I'm waiting for them to restock.
The only other CV I have is the Australian Desert lime, a mini Easter egg sized fruit with more juice. All fruit for this CV have come and gone for this year.
All PM's replied to.

I would be very interested in Crimson Tide.

(I've already bought a batch of red ones, this year, and they came smashed.)

I've got a few dozen Rick's Red seeds, which is the black skinned deep red fleshed type. The best and hard to distinguish from the Crimson Tide type (All of the black skinned red fleshed type, seemingly regardless of the name of the selection, are the best in my opinion).

I would absolutely love some of these seeds if you still have them and want to trade or whatever! How long to fruit from seed for these guys?

The other black skinned reds do seem just as awesome.
Checkout the commercial fingerlime growers 'limecaviarcompany' on instagram
- they have Byron Sunrise it's a seriously good looking fruit.

I think they supply a lot of the flash restaurants around Queensland and New South Wales (Australia).
