Finger Limes in the News 24-Nov-2009

Oh, I forgot to mention the Finger Lime…
… These tough and very spiky plants are native to shaley hillsides as an understory to larger trees, not necessarily gum trees though. I believe around Kenilworth for starters – seems a funny place for citrus, but there you are. They occur in many other places too but they are not rainforest plants (like for instance Coffee). So they welcome some shelter from the blazing sun and seriously good drainage…
