Citrus australasica ‘Sunshine Yellow’ is a really choice form of the well-known finger lime which is becoming very popular as an easy citrus plant to grow. Readily producing sweet smelling flowers which are followed by finger limes much loved these days by chefs for the delicious citrus pearls they produce.
Citrus australasica ‘Sunshine Yellow’ is a rarely available variety with beautiful yellow to pale green coloured citrus pearls inside the golden yellow fruits. Not only are they highly ornamental they add delicious tasty citrus explosions to any dish.
They can be grown in a conservatory, cool glasshouse, or bright windowsill indoors. Finger limes are also happy outside during the warmer months. We feed ours weekly with a seaweed-based fertiliser throughout the growing period.
These large plants are strong healthy, grown on by us here in the U.K and either flowering, have buds or fruit forming.
