Hi, Im Elena, just moved from California and love gardening. I spend some months studing in Australia 2 years ago and was introduced to Australian Finger Limes. Ive looked for them in nurserys and I believe people are just starting to import them to US. Im attaching some pictures (from google) so I can give a clear idea of what I mean.

Australian Finger Limes come in many colors.

This is the native tree.

Closer look of the Finger limes.

And finally one of the many intended uses.

I just loved the taste, and look of this wonderful pearls.

Texas, Florida, California and Arizona have a strict policy in importing grown trees (but no problem on seeds) so its been hard for me to find them all grown. Does anyone have andy insight on where to buy them, would like to swap or share me a small plant. (I have found some seeds on Amazon.com, but again, not sure if they will grow in Texas, Im in the South Austin area).

Thanks again

Elena
