Dark green and brown petite fruit; thin like a woman’s pinky finger or a gherkin pickle; the flesh is composed of teeny tiny pale green bubbles.
Strong, floral and perfumy lime fragrance.
Crunchy little nibs, not particularly juicy although it will drip a little juice if you just break it in half; a couple of them had a few seeds, which is weird because it claims to be “seedless”.
Strong sour lime.
OVERALL Overall Rating:
These are crazy fun little limes. I’ll be honest though, they aren’t as fun as I thought they would be. I wanted soft fingernail size bubbles of juice that would just explode with juicy flavor in my mouth. That being said, I am still going to use these crunchy little sour lime beads to elevate my social status. I intend to whip one of these out of my purse for new year’s eve, cut it in half and pop the beads in to my champagne glass, tapping the peel with my finger like the starlet in some sort of 1960’s thriller movie. All of my new fans/friends will watch them bobble around with delight while they try to get my phone number and make plans for lunch and tea and such. Thanks in advance little lime balls.
These come in tons of crazy fun colors, which I can not wait to get my hands on. Because even though I still don’t really have a clue what to do with them other than show them off, I love them. I have been carrying a couple in my bag for the last few days “just in case”.
I’ve been reading you for a couple of weeks and I just LOVE your blog! Your writing is so lively, funny and surprising, I’m always happy to see you’ve posted something new.
I have to say, though, that I’m so jealous of all the produce that is available where you live (I’m in Montreal, Canada)!!! I had never seen a fingerlime in my whole life (as for many other fruits you reviewed) and I have to say this looks beautiful!!! Thank you for sharing, and I wish you lots of success at your new year’s eve party!
I just bought a rainforest pearl finger lime (picture here http://2.bp.blogspot.com/-2Acv-WwRQMI/USpUn3djZBI/AAAAAAAABbo/JOP_BRESQeI/s1600/finger+lime+4.JPG) Was thinking of you!
