Citrus australasica ‘Judy’s Everbearing’

Judy’s Everbearing is a prolific cultivar, producing a plentiful crop of finger limes from summer to autumn and may produce fruits sporadically throughout the year. The fruits are a rich, dark green colour, and the pearls inside vary in colour depending on climatic conditions. This cultivar likes similar conditions to the classic finger lime, which comes from rainforest understory, so it will do well in in a warm, sheltered location with dappled light, however for best results and yield, full sun is ideal. Use the fruits as for other finger limes, with seafood, in drinks, or any way you would use lemon and lime.

Once you have found the plant that you want, the next step is to find where to get it. Nurseries stock a good range of plants, but due to space and supplies, they may or may not have the wanted plant in stock. If they don’t, they may be able to order it in for you.  Specialist nurseries are also able to give great advice, and if they don’t have the plant you want, they can often suggest alternative plants that will be just as good for you.
