We have been overwhelmed with demand for the Citrus Gems, Australian Native Blood Lime or Red Centre Lime.
An article featured on ABC's Landline has generated a huge interest in this wonderful citrus.
The Blood Lime Citrus tree is available from the Citrus Men site.

Prue Adams reports- GAVIN SCHUBERT, BLOOD-LIME GROWER: We were planting them for a company who we were contracted to grow them for and they went broke and so we were left with the trees, so I let them go. I didn't do anything to them for the last 12 years. And now that I've found a market, I've started looking after them again.
MARGY ABBOT: I give him a really good price for his blood-limes, because that ensures that I'll get that supply every year. So that's really important too, that you make sure that the grower is getting a premium price for their product. PRUE ADAMS: They've picked around 65 kilograms and chefs have apparently gone wild for the fruit, which works with seafood, desserts, even in a gin and tonic.
