Faustrime (Microcitrus australasica x Eustis Limequat) is a particular hybrid, very similar to a Finger Lime, also called “Caviar Lime”.
Why? Because of the particular high quality vesicles in the pulp
This hybrid comes from Australia, but has been hybridized in Europe, to be higher in quality and size.
-Tree features: Tree is so compact in shape, and extremely thorny, it’s impenetrable.
-Leaves: Leaves are bright green in colour, lanceolate to round in shape, and aromatic in flavour.
-Shape: Fruit is a medium big “Fingerlime” in size and shape.
-Flavour: Skin is so aromatic, intense in aroma. If you try this amazing fruit, you can taste a lime flavour, and then it comes a particular pepper aftertaste.
-Colour: Skin is usually green at first, then it becomes yellow, just like a limequat.
Pulp is somewhat green-white
