A bit expensive outside of California at 2.50 a bud (that would be $15 a scion) but they have Red finger lime.

or you can buy a tree from here https://www.fourwindsgrowers.com/products/australian-finger-lime-trees

A bunch of us ordered from ccpp in May 2019 to save on postage cost. My 1 red finger lime bud wood stick had 11 buds on it and my cost was $9. Unsure what it would taste like since it is still alive but hasn't grown at all. I tried to graft part of it to the green finger lime I bought but that looks dead - difficult when both stems are triangular and I've still learning how to graft.
In my search for different colored Finger lime I asked everyone a lot of questions, ccpp is testing a yellow (available to beta testing growers) and a red variety (only available to select commercial growers) that should be available to the public in 2 years.
I also found some foreign sites willing to sell the seeds but I live in the CA Citrus quarantine zone so not sure any will pass customs to me.
Found an Australian Citrus Farm site with a lot of different Finger lime varieties but he wanted payment in AUD and would hit the US Customs wall again.
I've been germinating various tropical seeds for a while but get a major die off once I transplant them into bigger pots. If the green finger lime seedlings don't die this time, I may think about saving for the others. Does anyone have any suggestions how to keep them alive?

Also, contact Stan at Mckenzie Farms to see if he has any more of the red finger limes grafted. I bought a red from him this summer. They are not listed on the page but he told me he would be grafting more. You can call and ask.
