F.A.Q.

  • Why did we develop our lime caviar? For these reasons; (i) to overcome the ‘fruit fly’ barriers that prevent the commercial export of fresh Australia-grown finger limes to most overseas countries and (ii) to create a gourmet fresh-like product that is available all-year regardless of where you are located.
  • Is lime caviar processed under food safe conditions? Yes, we are food licensed, HACCP certified and audited regularly.
  • When is lime caviar processed? During the finger lime picking season.
  • Do we buy finger limes from other farms for processing? Yes, but only from those that are GLOBALG.A.P. or Freshcare compliant.
  • Is anything added to the product? No, lime caviar is 100% natural. It is additive-free, gluten-free, allergen-free and vegan.
  • Is lime caviar good for you? Yes, it is packed full of immune-boosting nutrition and that’s why it is referred to regularly as Australia’s ‘superfood’.
  • Is lime caviar as good as the pearls of fresh finger limes? Yes, we think it is. Like fresh, it has the same exquisite taste, the same structure and the same ‘pop’.  
  • Does the pearl colour vary? Yes, colour variations occur naturally from one variety to another and within varieties. 
  • Do any countries prohibit its entry? We don’t know of any. We can send lime caviar to all countries that prohibit the entry of fresh Australia-grown finger limes because of fruit fly.     
  • Do fruit fly barriers exist in Australia? Yes, in South Australia, Western Australia and Tasmania. We send lime caviar to those States.
