Curry Plant

£20.00 exc delivery

This rare curry plants makes a great gift for a chef or curry lover. This is the true curry leaf tree Murraya Koenigii and it's leaves can be used fresh as you would bay leaves to produce an authentic curry flavour.

These little curry leaf plants are a great gift for a curry fan. Really hard to get hold of in the UK, these specialist trees will grow on in a nice warm spot on a sunny windowsill producing tasty leaves for cooking. We're delighted to have these special plants available again this summer but we do only have limited numbers so do snap them up whilst they are available.

20cm tall in a 1L pot

Care Instructions for Curry Plant
These instructions are sent with the plant gift
The Curry Leaf Tree (Murraya koenigii) also known as the Sweet Neem tree produces pungent leaves which add that authentic curry taste in Indian and Sri Lankan dishes. Not to be confused with the herbaceous ‘curry plant’ (Helichrysum Italicum) that smells but doesn’t taste of Curry. This true curry leaf can be used like bay leaves whole in cooking to add a pungent savoury flavour.
Native to warmer countries they do need to be protected from frost, particularly when young, so a bright windowsill is best in winter and a bright windowsill or sheltered patio in summer.
Once your plant has grown on a little you can start harvesting the leaves for cooking. Fresh leaves have by far the best flavour but you can also freeze or dry the leaves for future use.
Eventually these young plants can grow into attractive small trees and will produce white flowers followed by decorative black berries.
