finger limes/caviar limes in los angeles?
looking for some of these to test some recipes---they are supposed to be in season jan/feb, although this weird weather may have affected the crop. anyone seen them recently? TIA!
aha! shanley farms website sheds some light:
UPDATE JANUARY 8, 2012: OUT OF FINGER LIME INVENTORY. Due to extreme frost damage to the finger lime trees Shanley Farms will not be shipping finger limes for the next 2-3 weeks. The freeze caused all mature fruit to drop off of the trees and fall to the ground leaving only small and immature fruit on the trees.
there is at least one other distributor in the santa barbara area--contacted them over the weekend, and awaiting a reply. perhaps their crop was not as adversely affected as they are farther south.
