Caviar Limes (Finger Limes)
Finger or Caviar limes, botanically classified as Citrus australasica, are varieties of microcitrus that belong to the Rutaceae family. Finger limes are small, elongated fruits, averaging seven centimeters in length, and have a narrow, oblong shape with slight tapering at both ends. The thin, taut skin is semi-smooth with a leathery, pebbled texture, and can range in color from purple, red-orange, dark green, light green, to black.
The slender, finger-like fruits have been nicknamed the “caviar of fruit,” and are globally sought after for their bright flavor and unique popping consistency. A wonderful addition to ur tropical fruit cocktails mixes.
Despite their recent rise to fame among high-end chefs, Finger limes are an ancient fruit that has been utilized for thousands of years in Australia. There are over six genetically diverse varieties found in varying sizes and colors.
Finger limes are an excellent source of vitamin C, which is an antioxidant that strengthens the immune system and helps to reduce inflammation. The fruits are also a good source of vitamin E, a nutrient that protects the body against environmental damage, and contains folate and potassium.
Finger limes are utilized as a fresh garnish and can be incorporated into both raw and cooked preparations. The limes can be sliced in half, gently squeezed or scooped to extract the pearls, and layered over tacos, grain bowls, green salads, and fruit salads. The pearls can also be sprinkled over sliced avocado or melons with sea salt as a fresh snack.
