Finger Lime / フィンガーライム

Posted on 22nd September 2011 in Fruit & Vegetable

Finger lime (aka. caviar lime) is about the size of little finger and has been popularised as a gourmet bushfood. It is originated in Australia, and one California farmer is elaborately growing the trees. Because it takes five years from planting to first crop, and it produces only 5lb from one tree, it is used as a valuable ingredient at high-class restaurant.

小指ほどの大きさのフィンガーライムはブッシュキャビアとも呼ばれ、中から美しい小さな粒が続々と出てきます。 もともとオーストラリアが原産国ですが、カリフォルニアに一軒だけある農家が丹精込めて生産しています。植樹してから最初の収穫まで5年かかり、現在1本の木から2、3k­g程度しか収穫できないため、高級食材としてレストランなどで多く使われています。
