Just wondering if the newer, tastier varieties of Australian finger limes are in SoCal yet? Does anyone know if the CCPP has them yet? Anybody grow seeds and get lucky with a good tasting variety? Any Nurseries selling the better varieties? Thanks

Simon

CCPP has red Australian finger lime. I got wood yesterday and grafted it.

That's the same one they had before. Same number, only it said pink before.

Thanks Behlgarden, I just placed an order. Hopefully it grows ok on my tangerine or lemon trees.

Simon, I have a green one grafted on my valencia, it's been going good for about three years.
