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.

WHERE TO GET YOUR PLANT
Once you have found the plant that looks right for you, the next step is where to buy it.
Most nurseries stock a good range of plants, but due to space and supplies, they may not always have the plant that you are searching for in stock. If they don’t, they may be able to order it in for you if you request it.
Specialist nurseries are also able to give great advice, and if they don’t have the plant you have planned on, they can often suggest alternatives that will also work well for you.
