We currently only ship fruit fresh - not frozen. Please check the customs regulations for your country prior to making an inquiry as every country has different restrictions regarding the import of fresh fruit.

Good decision. Each tree can produce around twenty kilograms of fruit per season and the export market rate for fresh fruit is often between US$40 - $60 per kilo. Fruit is often sold 'in country' for much more. With fruit bearing trees providing an annual income in excess of $1000 per tree, you will understand why it is very difficult to find anyone selling mature trees.
Sounds simple, but it's not. You will have do a lot of research to confirm whether or not fresh or frozen Australian Finger Lime (Citrus Australasica) fruit is allowed into your country. If you are allowed to import Finger Lime Fruit, we professionaly document, pack and ship them to your door via your preferred courier or postal service.
