I see that Good Land Organics is shipping finger limes...has anyone seen any in the Farmer's Markets or elsewhere?

THANKS!

    Hi running pig,

    When it comes to fruit - any fruit - David Karp is the sage:

    Shanley Farms states their season for finger limes is from late August to mid-February.

      I haven't seen them today at the Wednesday FM. Correct me if i'm wrong but aren't they more of a fall/winter crop?

        I've seen them at the Wednesday Santa Monica farmer's market. Not sure when they are in season though.
