Don't know where to get them locally, but here is an online source:

It looks like they're out of them at that site. Same story here: http://shop.shanleyfarms... and here:http://www.gilttaste.com... You might want to contact Melissa's Produce: http://www.melissas.com...
Good luck with your search! I tasted one many years ago, and was smitten. Unfortunately, the seeds didn't germinate, but I bought a small tree last year and am watching it like a hawk!
Where did you buy your tree from?

Discover our wonderful fingerling potatoes, the world's favorite vegetable. Purple Peruvian, French Fingerling, Ruby Crescent, and Russian Banana are low-starch potatoes, nutritionally rich in vitamin C, fiber and potassium. In addition, potatoes are low in calories. Fingerlings are firm and have smooth skins with similarly colored flesh, approximately 1-3 inches long and 1 inch wide. From appetizers, soups, and stews, to salads and main dishes, you can bake, boil, microwave, or roast them. Regardless of how you choose to prepare these special spuds, you'll find them enticing and full of rich flavor.
oops... wrong Fingerling!
Here are the Finger Limes from Melissa's:
This is the second commercial season for this new and unique citrus variety. The fruit’s exterior resembles a pickling cucumber or cocktail avocado in shape and size. Its skin is thin, ranging in color from purplish or greenish black to light green or rusty red. However, when sliced in half, the round, pearlescent juice vesicles, which are under pressure, ooze out of the fruit like a lava flow. Unlike the tender juice sacs in most citrus, the greenish-white or pinkish sacs in finger limes are quite firm and pop on the tongue like caviar, releasing a flavor that combines lemon and lime with an aromatic hint of fresh herbs. Citrus caviar!
