The mature shrub/small tree size: 6′-8′(H) and (W).  Very thorny!  USDA Zones:10-11. Best growing in warmer climate in full sun to partial shade location.  Since its mature size is not big so it is fine for potting to grow indoor sunny location.

它的成熟灌木高度或寬幅為6-8呎.  植株多刺! 耐熱不耐寒. 由於地植的植株不大所以能室內盆植. 最好種植在全日照到半日照溫暖的環境.

This is how I grow them:  我的孵法:

1.A pot with Triple Mix and well drained medium 1:1.

1.取一小苗盆裝:3合一的肥沃花土和排水佳土壤1比1.

2.Get fresh firm seeds cleaned and lay on top of the potting mix.  Place the pot in partial shade location and keep moist the soil.  Place the pot in room temperature, partial shade location with good air flow.

2.取新鮮飽滿的優質種子,清洗後放上步驟1.的表土上.  置於室溫半日照通風處.

3.About 1 week the seed will sprout but no green leaf yet, continue to moist the soil.

3.約1週種子會出根但尚未能出小芽葉.  繼續保溼.

4.Another 1 month the seedling will grow rapidly with green shoots, you can seed few tiny leaves appear.  Place the pot in full sun to partial shade location.

4.約過再1個月出根的小種子才會加速生長突長出帶幾片小綠葉的芽.  苗盆置於全日照到半日照處.

5.Firtilize the seedlings when the cotyledon (seed leaf) is shrunk.  Use dilute balance ratio fertilizer such as 10-10-10 or 20-20-20.

5.等子葉的養份耗損縮小才開始施均衡比例的薄肥.  如氮-磷-鉀比例為10-10-10 或20-20-20.

6.When young plants grow steadly transplant each plant in their indivisual pot before the plants get too thorny.

6.小苗生長情況穩定後要趁不是太多刺時移植分盆,一盆一株.

7.When the plant stem turn woody or firm and thick, you may clip away the pricks for safety measure.

7.安全考量上要等枝條變硬或木質化時即可將硬刺剪除.

8.To stimulate plant growth and aging, grafting its own shoots will do so.

8.植株成長正常要使植株刺激生長並加速老化以開花結果可以自株嫁接.

Finger Lime comes with different colors of lime pearls inside. But the taste is the same. (Citrus australasica) 手指檸檬的果粒根據品種果粒的顏色有所不同. 但吃起來都一樣.

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!

看起來像是魚卵,吃起來的彈牙口感也像. 的確當食物裝飾是比純吃它合適!
