Citrus Caviar Finger Lemon
The Australian finger lime, also known as citrus australasica, is basically a thorny understorey shrub or small tree of lowland subtropical rainforest in the coastal border region of Queensland and New South Wales, Australia. These edible fruits produce what looks like caviar, and they are under development as a potential new commercial crop. Read more for a video and additional information.

The finger lime has recently been recognized as a gourmet bushfood since its globular juice vesicles (also known as pearls) have been likened to a “lime caviar” and can be used as a garnish or added to various recipes. When chewed, they have a burst of effervescent tangy flavor, and the fruit juice is acidic, similar to that of a lime. Its peel can also be dried and used as a flavoring spice.
