I would be happy to have some.  :) Let me know if you get some extra seeds to spare. Round limes look cool too. I got some seeds last year and only 3 of them sprouted. Two survived and they are slow growing. Also I lost the tag and now have no idea what they are. Well, let's them grow bigger and give me some fruits.  :D

Round limes or desert limes have an interesting feature; they grow spines on the trunk until a certain a point and then stop. This is the maximum grazing height of kangaroos.

Byron Sunrise



Fantastic Finger lime porn, do you have problems with leaf miners? Here in S.florida we have problems with these prolific insects if we dont use Monsanto products like the nurseries here to keep the leaves pristine, cankers and other unpleasant invaded were leaf miners tunnel and the plant become fodder for mulch heap. Are these australian natives more resistant to pest?

Coconut,

When I was growing a Australian finger lime in CA, it was untouched by leaf miners when the cara cara orange, key lime, and other citrus was affected by the pest.
