Colima is a rounded shrub bearing recurved thorns and red shiny fruit that contrasts well with its bright green leaflets in mid, to late summer. An important wildlife plant, colima is a food source for white tailed deer, many birds, butterfly larvae and butterflies, who sip the nectar from its inconspicuous flowers. Its bark and bitter-tasting aromatic leaves are powdered and used as a condiment, while its wood produces a yellow dye. The flowers, leaves and fruit have an aroma of citrus.

I do wish you all carried Australian Finger Limes. I have grown one from seed and it is only two inches high; also there are cultivars available in Australia that have larger fruit and more colors; perhaps you could get some of those?
It is a very neat citrus, sort of self-sectioning once the skin is broached.
Thanks for all.
