Finger limes originate from Australian, where they spent millions of years evolving. They are small, about 2-3 inches long, and finger shaped. They can be snapped open, exposing the many tiny spheres inside filled with tart and sweet citrus juice that's subtly lime-flavoured. These little spheres are sometimes called "citrus caviar" and make perfect texture and flavour enhancing additions to desserts, seafood, and salads. The skin of the spheres remains intact until bitten into, giving a little burst of flavour and pop of texture to the dish it garnishes.
Shaped like small pickles or cucumbers with ends that taper to points, finger limes are most commonly a purple or blackish dark green, though they sometimes appear as light green or even brownish-red. The skin of the fruit is rough and pebbled.
The acidity of this fruit lends itself to making jellies and marmalades, and the shape of the juice spheres makes them an interesting visual component to any dish.
About the Vendor
Mikuni Wild Harvest is a Vancouver-based company that sources sustainable and artisanal food from the pacific rim. Mikuni started exporting mushrooms to Japan and Europe in the early eighties. In 2001, Mikuni changed focus to the development of a boutique line of sustainable wild foods for restaurants and gourmet retail outlets. Since then, our company has grown from a few committed individuals slugging it out in a basement office, to a team of like-minded individuals with distribution centers throughout Canada and the United States. Although the size and direction of our company has changed dramatically over the years, our concept and commitment has not. It has always been Mikuni’s goal to provide our customers with the highest quality of unique and sustainable wild foods. Inasmuch as the organic food movement has garnered attention in the last decade, at Mikuni we believe that we are at the beginning of another movement, one that explores the abundance of richly flavoured foods found exclusively in the wild.
