Finally the little flower buds opened today. The flowers are tiny and white on the inside, pinkish on the outside.
Mine has five petals…. I was researching to see what I need to do to get these little flowers to produce fruit and it appears I need to add Epsom salt and water lots.
I also found out that some finger limes have three petals only…. And since mine has five petals, that it’s actually a Microcitrus australasica sanguinea – the red-fleshed fingerlime! Even more exciting as I did not know this when I bought the plant.
