Finger Limes - Citrus Caviar - Citrus Pop Rocks - Lime Boba
See how the pulp comes out!!! My first short video (19 seconds) on YouTube.
LunchBots divided tin and I grabbed a couple of these finger limes (I digress, but I love this little tin...I'll have to do a post on my many lunch containers). I cut them in half and threw them in the tin.
A quick Google search says that the LA Times talked about them back in 2009 (David Karp's article), but I must have missed it. KCRW's Good Food talked about them in 2010 (Nov 13, 2010 episode). Frieda's will be bringing them to grocery stores soon.
My snack photos above are from Instagram. I pulled out my macro lens tonight and shot a few photos. These limes are really small and so cute.
Frieda's Produce as "tart, lemony-lime flavor with slight herbaceous notes." I describe them as "tiny lime bobas" and have a bit of rind flavor. They were little citrus bursts on my veggies, and I imagine they would be great in cocktails or atop a nice piece of fish.
Disclosure: I received one free package of Finger Limes from Frieda's Produce. However, I was not compensated for this post and opinions are my own. I really am this enthralled with this citrus - and all citrus! I'm lucky to live in Southern California where we have so much citrus surrounding us (see California Citrus Tart)
