Hi Daniel,
 is it a garrawayi lime? That's quite rare fruit even among citrus enthusiasts i believe. Congrats on your new endeavor I wish Id gotten into citrus younger.

You may want to ask a mod to move this to the citrus discussion sub-forum.

It's most often called Mt White Lime. It is found wild in Cape York around the Coen area, but also scattered around the Cape area.
Even though it is from the far Nth of Australia, it seems fairly tough.
The fruit are like large green skinned finger limes. The skin is resinous. The pulp is granular, white vesicles about the texture of firm cooked white rice.
The flavour reminds me of something like if someone compressed and concentrated a white pummelo.
It is pleasant to eat, but not sweet.
If you eat a lot of fruit, a resin sticks to your teeth.
Some types have pink pulp, I hear some have green pulp.

It looks the same as my Mt White Lime. In Russia do you grow your Citrus indoors or in a glass house ??

we grow at home in pots, for us many varieties that are in the USA from CCPP are considered rare, and not everyone can afford them
