Red Champagne Finger Lime Trees -50mm Pots (Cutting Grown)
Red Champagne is a very productive red finger lime variety
Red Champagne is a select commercial finger lime variety that has a dark red skin and pinkish coloured vesicles. It is a very productive variety that usually has year round flushes in addition to its main spring flush. This is unique amongst finger limes and can enable supply throughout the year. The fruit is popular in the industry and brings out subtle flavours of spiced apple and apricot, and berry aromas.
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.
We suggest that initially you plant the trees into larger pots and grow them on for three to six months before planting in the garden. In the pots, we recommend only using premium potting mix with some added controlled release fertilizer (osmocote/ nutricote etc). Garden soil is not suitable for use in pots.
Once the trees reach around 30 cm tall they are ready to plant in the garden, you will need to keep weeds away from the tree and initially water every couple of days or so to ensure that the roots are kept moist. Mulching around the tree and protecting it with a tree guard is recommended.
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 help ensure they arrive at their destination before the weekend.
