Like the sherbet bomb you ate as a kid! Australian Native Desert Lime are also a very rich source of calcium and contain high levels of vitamin C, folate (vitamin B9), vitamin E and lutein. Fresh Desert Limes freeze whole and can be eaten whole too.
Pop them into gin and tonics, cakes, stir-fries, salads – just about anything that wants a fresh lime addition. They will hydrate in water but not to their original state. We use them as-is normally, but in tangines and curries etc they will act like preserved lime and re-hydrate.
The product comes in two types and sizes :
◎ 50 g in a food safe resealable bag (Black)
◎ 1 kg bulk order bag (brown)
Powdered: These desert limes are so tangy and delicious, we use them at home in everything. The powder comes freeze-dried in a resealable 50g bag.
Chips: These come as dried whole chips and make fantastic additions to cocktails and mocktails. There will be some powder in the pack.

Warndu means good in the Adnyamathanha language. Our mission is to REGENERATE culture, community, tradition, health and our soils. Every product we make includes one or more Australian Native ingredients.
Our products are all made in Australia from 100% locally sourced, seasonal and wild harvested produce.
In our efforts to be zero waste and plastic free, and with the changes to recycling in Australia, we will be phasing out all bags that you purchase. For now you may receive your spices, teas and home products in either black, white or clear plastic, and once that is all gone our amazing new compostable plant-based packaging will be what you will receive products in.
Thanks for your patience and understanding whilst we endeavour to tread lightly on your yarta.
