Grafted Maleny Red Finger Lime Trees in 90mm pots: QLD only
Finger lime “Maleny Red” is a hardy commercial variety that has a dark reddish skin with a vibrant pink flesh. The large attractive fruit is usually seedless and around 8-12cm in length. The flavour and the colour of the vesicles intensify during the growing season, producing a crisp sweet lime flavour when fully ripe.
Finger limes are grown in much the same way as other citrus species. They are best planted in full sun in fertile soil that is well drained. They also grow well in large pots in a sunny position.
The trees are 8-12 months old, 30 to 40cm tall, sun hardened and ready to plant into the ground
All our Finger Lime trees are clones, propagated from mature wood and will generally start to bear when the trees are quite small but it is best to remove these fruit and let the trees reach around 80cm in height (usually 12 – 18 months) before allowing the fruit to develop on the tree.
Finger limes do not have to be grafted to perform well. They are native to rainforest areas of northern NSW and Queensland and are resistant to root diseases.
Please Note: our trees are not grown from seed- seedling trees are not true to type and can take 8-10 years to bear.
Finger limes are an amazing Australian native fruit that come in various colours including red, pink, green, and purple.
Please note: we can only supply Finger Lime trees within QUEENSLAND due to state quarantine regulations.
We only send trees early in the week to try ensure they arrive at their destination before the weekend.
