Growing Australia’s fingerlime industry
Jade King wanted to grow something native and a little bit different on her Queensland-based plot of land. She put the question to her high school class and one student had the suggestion of growing finger limes. 300 trees later, Jade is a commercial finger lime grower.
Aided with the help of a Nuffield Scholarship, sponsored by the AgriFutures Australia Emerging Industries Program, Jade is on a mission to grow Australia’s finger lime industry and establish an industry body to expand on research knowledge and skills.
