Green Valley produces Red Champagne Fingerlimes year round. Our orchard is continually expanding and is sustainably managed.
In the orchard, Red Champagne consistently proves it is a consistently cropping commercial cultivar. Year round vigour and tolerance to pests and diseases makes it a great production choice. Red Champagne has year round flushes of flowering as well as heavy spring flowering, allowing supply through all seasons. Its superior shelf, also makes it a preferred variety for use as a fresh fruit export.
In general, finger limes area a rainforest tree that naturally occurs as an understorey tree in south-eastern Queensland and Northern Finger Lime trees vary in habit and height. The fruits are cylindrical in shape, up to 120mm long and only about 20-30mm in diameter. They do have prominent thorns and do contain some seeds. They have a thin skin that ranges in colour from green, yellow, red, purple to even a black. The oil cells on the rind are small giving the fruit a great glossy appearance. The fruit contains juice vesicles in pearls that are compressed and burst out when ripe and the skin of the fruit is cut.
