Thanks.
I don't know the variety, not sure if Faustrime. It is seedless. One fruit is 30-40 grams. A small tree 1 m high produced around 25 fruits, even more considering those which dropped.
I grafted few more trees from this. It's more productive than limes and it tastes good. I ate it on top of bbq fish.  ;D

So many cures and retardants for the aging process. I often think that if, when I was young, had I known I would live this long I would have not smoked stuff and guzzled a lot of beer but.....alas I have lived, reared children, am comfortable in my age and enjoy days and nights. If only I had used fingerlime for all.............😁

My finger limes get pinkish on the inside. Itís been awhile, but if I remember correctly it was from fourwinds.

That's interesting.  I have two trees from them, waiting on the fruits to ripen.  What color is the skin?

What do you do with finger lime?  Ive got some fruit but really not sure what to do with it?  Seems more like a novelty tree.

I like to eat them, as they sort of pop in your mouth.  My secretary loves them and will eat all I have to offer.

I eat them on top of grilled fish, delicious. The rind is also good in cookies and others.
I found that when harvested in cold weather the rind is so aromatic and smells all over.

Thanks for your opinion. I think it's Faustrime as well.
