Rainforest Pearl (Finger Lime) – Citrus Gems
Posted on May 14, 2013
Cylindrical, finger sized and shaped fruit. Fruit is usually produced in autumn. Fragrant thin green skin blushed with crimson. Slice fruit open to reveal a vault of glistening citrus pearls bursting with juicy limey flavours. Originating from the understory Rainforest Pearl naturally enjoys dappled light, although performs best in full sun, in a warm protected location. Use the citrus pearls as a delicious garnish for seafood and shellfish, use fruit whole or sliced when making tangy marmalades and sauces.
