Good Land Organics
Good Land Organics is a family-operated, certified-organic farm growing unique and hard to find fruit varieties.
Jay Ruskey’s Good Land Organics is at the forefront of organic agriculture and perennial orcharding in Southern California. They are praised as an innovative, agricultural leader in the nation, widely known for experimenting with growing and cultivating tropical fruit and coffee in North America.
Caviar Limes, also known as ‘vegan caviar’ or ‘finger limes,’ are finger-shaped micro citrus, filled with tiny, delicate, citrus pearls. Native to Australia, the variety of caviar limes grown by Good Land Organics has a dark green peel and an interior filled with light green or pale yellow citrus pearls in spring and early summer. Come fall, some caviar limes begin to “blush”- showing off colorful pink, yellow and green pearls, and peels in a range of burgundy and green shades.
Caviar Limes have delicate citrus pulp with a mildly sour sweetness. Each tiny pulp is a perfectly circular bubble of citrus juice that bursts in your mouth with flavor.
Good Land Organics is a family-operated, certified-organic, biodiverse farm, located just north of Santa Barbara, California, nestled between the Santa Ynez mountains and the Pacific Coast. Jay Ruskey and his family founded Good Land Organics with a unique farm mission: to experiment growing rare crops in North America. These days, the farm grows coffee, dragon fruit, passion fruit, longan, Inga Bean, amongst many more tropical crops, normally found in highly tropical climates around the world.
What makes the Ruskey’s farm unique is their three-dimensional farming strategy of layering crops to create windbreaks, canopies, and provide support structure. This style of layered agriculture serves to support water conservation efforts as well as foster a biodiverse environment. Organic Caviar Limes are one of Good Land’s most coveted crops—an endeavor that took 10 years of planning and trialing for Jay Ruskey and his family to implement.
These Caviar Limes are protected by Apeel, a plant-derived solution making it possible to ship delicate Caviar Limes directly to your door by offering a layer of protection and shelf life extension to farmers. Grown primarily in Australia, with only a handful of growers in California, Caviar Limes can be hard to find. With Apeel, Good Land Organics is able to ship directly to your home.
The Ruskey’s are excited to announce their summer harvest of Organic Caviar Limes to the FruitStand community!

Good Land Organics picks their Caviar Limes at perfect ripeness so they arrive in your kitchen ready to eat. Your Caviar Limes are protected by Apeel, a plant-based solution or “peel” that helps keep produce fresh for longer.
Slice your Caviar Limes in half and gently squeeze to push out the citrus pearls. You can also slice Caviar Limes lengthwise to garnish drinks and food dishes. We recommend that you do not eat the skin, much like you would not eat a traditional lime peel.
Add a satisfying crunch and flavor to dressings, seafood, spreads and desserts. Caviar Limes are also a delicious citrus to add to cocktails, mocktails, beer or bubbly.
Caviar Limes should only be stored in the canvas bag if you plan to consume them all within three days. For longer storage, transfer to a non-airtight plastic, glass or silicon container and keep in the fridge for up to 2 weeks. You can also freeze caviar limes, whole or sliced, in an airtight container for up to 6 months. If you plan to use frozen caviar limes in beverages, we recommend slicing them prior to freezing.
This item will be shipping FedEx 2-Day air directly from California during the shipping window indicated on this page and in your email receipt. There is a $9.00 flat rate shipping fee per box added to your order at checkout. You will receive an email with your shipment's tracking number when shipped.

I love using these caviar limes, and I use them in all types of cooking and baking. Wonderful produce as always.
This is the cutest cookie I ever did see :) How fun to use the caviar limes on them, Jyoti. Thank you for your amazing feedback & sharing the picture with us!
Great service & fun people to talk to! Got them quick & started eating right away.
Aww yay! We're so glad to hear you love love your limes, Kay. You're a delight to talk with as well! Thanks for sharing your great feedback with us :)
I’ve been looking forward to these for a while and they’re as good as I remember. Several months ago I saw an internet post about finger limes from FruitStand but they were sold out. I hadn’t been able to find them any place else so I stalked FruitStand and here we are! I gave a few limes to my daughter-in-law while we were at lunch and the look on her face when she cut into and squeezed one, was priceless!
That picture is beautiful, Penny! So glad to hear that what you had been looking forward to for so long were as good as you remembered them. How fun to share with your daughter-in-law too! Thank you for sharing your great feedback with us :)
These are the best. A fun amazing treat.
We're so glad to hear you are enjoying this amazing treat of caviar limes, Amy!

Thank you for your stellar feedback about your experience ordering the caviar limes, Regina. It means so much to us to hear that you're happy. :)
Since I have discovered caviar limes, I can’t quit buying them. I wish I could order them years round and I wish I could grow them in my back yard. I’m addicted.
You're not alone in the addiction, Shannon! We're beyond happy that you love them too :)
