Nigella Lawson has discovered the native finger lime, which grows in abundance in the Scenic Rim.
The domestic goddess recently tweeted her 2.6-million followers that she was just back from Down Under.
“And I have to report that finger limes are the future. The caviar of the citrus world.”

The Scenic Rim is home to The Lime Caviar Company, a spectacular farm just outside Rathdowney, where Ian and Margie Douglas produce the native citrus and send to customers around the world.
