They are small and elongated, almost resembling gherkins, containing tiny spherical vessels filled with tart juice that is sometimes called Lime or Citrus Caviar. Also called Finger Lime.

When it comes to taste, finger limes are tart and tangy, with a burst of citrusy flavor that is both sweet and sour — and sometimes bitter, depending on the variety.

Finger Lime can be used in many different ways ranging from seafood to cocktails. The tiny vesicles make a great garnish for salads, ceviches, and sushi rolls. They can also be used as a topping for oysters or smoked salmon. The tart and tangy flavor of finger limes pairs well with fish and other seafood, making them a great addition to any seafood dish. They can also be used to make jams, marmalades, and syrups.
