Finger Lime (Citrus australasica) 手指檸檬
Today my husband and I have bought these finger limes to try! There are 3 different lime pearls inside. Although they taste just the same. The fruit fragrance smells close to regular lime. Not as fragrant or acidic as lemon. These lime pearls do look like fish eggs!
今天在超市買到一小盒手指檸檬,是3種顏色混合的. 乍看以為都一樣的,切開看才知道內容果粒的顏色不一樣. 果粒酸度和聞起來的香氣比較接近青檸,沒有黃檸檬來的香和酸.
This 85g small package sold in supermarket for CDN$19.99 I think it is over priced. 😦 But consider that I might able to grow them from seeds for fun so we still bought it. One fruit has 0-1 seed in average. The larger fruit do contain 2 seeds each. But the most of seeds so far are not large and firm so I am not sure if they are viable or not. Perhaps they can be germinated this way already, it doesn’t hurt to give them a try anyways.
一小盒85克這裡賣20元加幣,是很貴! 😦 不過看在很好奇它的滋味和可能有種子可以種的份上還是買了. 一個小小的果實內種子數是0-1個. 但較大顆的果實有到2顆種子的. 看大部份的種子都不是很優的飽滿種子,有點失望,但也許這已經足夠孵也說不一定.
The lime pearls or ‘lime caviar’ do look like fish eggs, also the texture… It is more appropriate to use them to garnish sea food!

Seeds germinated! 種子發芽了!
