Contact briteleaf! They have rooted cuttings for $15, pretty decent sized too! One of the 5 I ordered even came with flowers.

Note they donít have them listed on their site yet, I would send them an email. They told me about them based on how much I order from them lol.

Thanks Frank! Will check them out.

Picked up a tree (green) from Just Fruits and Exotics in Crawfordville. Healthy bush, looking real nice.

Sure! They have whatís called a Large Finger Lime which I guess is a larger fruit version of a green finger lime as well. Good you found a decent one though anyways!

Some listings on Etsy, but expensive. Hopefully can buy some budwood of Champagne finger lime.

Some definite _____s (what's up with the edit, seriously) on Etsy and eBay selling "finger lime/champagne finger lime."

Happy that I know cool and honest people here on TFF, local, and abroad.
