Limes

Almost a year ago I bought a whole lot of plants, including an 'Australian Outback' lime tree. I picked my first harvest the other day.

They, unfortunately, weren't very juicy - such a pity as we were making drinks at the time - but they smell delicious. They are also the size of a fingernail!
I love weird plants! They are black when they grow and gradually go a very dark green. Developed by the CSIRO (use the link to read more about the varieties they've developed) from a native lime, and, now I read the info sheet, good for making sauces. There are a lot more on the tree so I might just try out some sauce recipes.

And, don't worry, I have a normal lime tree too, especially for drinks!
