Searching for "Blood Lime" in Florida

JCitrusAugust 22, 2014

Hi yall, im on a citrus Bender and would love to track down a "blood lime" for my collection. I know excalibur carries what they call a blood lime but it doesn't look the same as some of the ones I see in Pics on the web. I will likely get one from Richard but would also like one of the ones that are bright red. Any ideas?? much apreciated. Thanks!!

Seriously? That is not a real citrus, clearly Photoshopped. There is no lime that looks like that. The blood lime, which is not available in the state of California, but may be available in Florida will look more like a blood orange, somewhere between a Moro and a Tarrocco.

I thought the same thing, but a google image search of "blood lime" shows many pics of them, I chose this pic because to me its wild, I would LOVE to have one, mostly associated with recipes, couldnt find any us sources but they apear to be avialable in Aus somewhere it states its some sort of a cross btwn a red aussi finger lime and a Mandarin. Input much apreciated

They do exist, that was not the point I was making, the point was your first photo is Photoshopped, make no mistake. If you want to know if this is available in Florida, check with University of FL Budwood program. That would be the only place a grower would be able to get clean budwood. If U of FL has it, then it may be available in the state of Florida. These are not like Mexican (Key) Limes or Bearss LImes, more like the Australian Finger Lime. Rather dry, lime-like, not probably the best tasting citrus, but certainly a novelty.
