Those aren’t jalapenos; they’re finger limes
Ten years ago Shanley Farms, predominantly an avocado operation, in Moro Bay, California, decided to try to grow something new — finger limes. The first in the U.S. to grow finger limes commercially, owner Jim Shanley and his daughter, Megan, have now found a niche market for this unusual product. While they may look like jalapenos at first sight, this rare type of produce native to Australia is actually Citriburst Finger Limes. The interior pulp can best be described as citrus pearls, or citrus caviar. The citrus pearls can be squeezed out and used in any place that you would use a lemon or lime, and goes exceptionally well on seafood and various desserts.
