Caviar Lime Citrus australasica


Caviar lime, also called finger lime is a fruit native to sub-tropical rainforests in Australia and New Zealand and have been a valuable source of food and medicine for Aboriginal Australians for thousands of years. The fruit is produced on a small shrub and contains small juice vesicles that have been likened to lime caviar. They have recently been gaining popularity and are underdevelopment as a potential new commercial crop.

Caviar limes contain a high concentration of vitamin C, which helps to increase collagen production and help tighten skin. It also has strong antioxidant and antimicrobial properties. The natural acidity of the fruit helps to lighten skin pigmentation, prevent dark spots on skin and reduce dull skin caused by fluctuations in hormone levels during pregnancy.
