Australia’s Specialists in Premium & Bulk Finger Lime Production

 Situated in Bellthorpe on the beautiful Sunshine Coast hinterland in Queensland, our orchards are nestled against lush vegetation and vast national parks. Our family owned property spans over 150 acres with over 4000 finger lime trees 

We have been at the forefront of the finger lime industry since we began commercially growing over twenty years ago. Our success in growing finger limes has led us to develop our own plant breeding program to further develop specific finger lime varieties that thrive particularly well on our land.

Our beautiful property has its very own rain forest which is where nature truly intended finger limes to grow. This optimal natural environment, combined with high rainfalls and an incredible number of both native and honey bees  are key contributors to our consistent production of large volumes of quality fruit year after year.

Boutique Citrus has been providing bulk finger limes to the best restaurants and international fruit markets across the globe for many years. From Europe to Canada, Asia and Africa, Boutique Citrus has an established reputation for supplying only the highest standard of finger limes which sees our most valued customers return to us each season.

History of Boutique Citrus

Originally a deer farm, Greg Childe-Freeman had always held a keen desire to convert his land into orchards and in the early 1990’s took the first steps and developed the land into a highly successful avocado business.

While the Sunshine Coast Hinterland is famous for its rich volcanic soil, some areas of the property have clay, which is perfect for citrus. With an eye on developing these areas into citrus groves, Greg came across the finger lime while looking to diversify the property with a new crop.

One thousand Rainforest Pearl Finger Limes were planted in 2003 and quickly grew into impressive, healthy trees that loved the clay soil. Excited by the options of so many different finger limes, Greg soon purchased more and found success in the growth and development of over seven varieties; Emerald, Alstonville, Polka Dot, Chartreuse, Pink Ice, Rainforest Diamond, Pink Champagne and the very exciting Ruby.

Greg’s efforts and commitment to seeing this native Australian fruit become more than just ‘bush tucker’ has resulted in Boutique Citrus finger limes being sold in Michelin Star restaurants worldwide and highly sought after by European, Japanese and Korean markets.

Today, we have over 4000 trees in our orchards. It’s fair to say, we are proud of our work and even prouder of this amazing little native Australian fruit that excites not only us, but people all over the world!
