Red fingerlime seeds
« on: December 17, 2020, 12:16:30 PM »
I have about 10-15 seeds of red fingerlime.
Those interested I give them for free only pay postage 2.5

For novice growers: bear in mind it might take up to 10 years to fruit. No idea if cross pollinated.

I just wonder about the precociousness of (formerly) Microcitrus. Some say it takes very long until the first flower, but e.g. Ethan Nielsen, which worked professionally with it said it is sometimes flowering in it 1st year.

Any experiences?

I purchased Finger lime seeds from Australia once, they were from a plant with big green fruits. I managed to keep them alive for 4-5 years and they did not develop any flowers, unfortunately, I lost them after one winter.
I do recommend to grow them from seed, they have quite an interesting appearance, more like cactus than citrus.
