Australian Finger Lime, or Citrus Caviar, is a thorny citrus shrub from the lowland subtropics of Australia. Its a thorny but manageable shrub, that produces elongated citrus fruits resembling a finger. The globular juice vesicles resemble caviar, varying from white to pink in color, and are often used for garnishes.
