Introducing our nurseries second Finger Lime release - Aubergine Black. This stunning variety produces large, shiny eggplant/black coloured fruit, that have a green/white flesh, and little to no seeds. Upon ripening, the skin of the fruit changes to a reddish brown colour.

The Aubergine black is a very heavy producer, producing masses of fruit that look very attractive on the tree. 

Finger limes grow well in containers, and love free draining soil, and a mulch layer. They grow well in both direct sun, and part sun positions, and can handle light frosts once established. While establishing, you will need to frost protect them with either a frost cloth, liquid frost cloth, or take the plant into a sheltered spot if it is in a container.

Trees that are pruned early will bush out, however if unpruned, they grow more upright. Finger limes send out long water sprouts which then become their branches, so you can easily shape the trees to how you would like them to look in the future. 

Aubergine Black are grafted onto our Trifoliata rootstocks, which creates a semi dwarfing tree that produces more flowers and fruit, and fruit with a higher brix content than other trifoliatas available in New Zealand. The tree will grow to around 3-3.5 meters high, and 2 meters wide.
