Current Description

MAY 2022 UPDATE - You have reached this page as we know you have been patiently waiting on our 'wish list'.

We have now sold out of our first batch for 2022 but we have another batch of 50 nice young plants growing on that will be available for delivery from the beginning of July. We do expect this batch to sell out fairly quickly, so if you would like a curry plant this year we strongly advise that you pre-order and reserve your plant from this batch now otherwise you will need to rejoin the waiting list for next year.

We are working hard to increase our production of these popular plants but because we grow them ourselves from our own seed in Sussex there is a limit to how many we can produce.

We still have a very long waiting list for these plants and we are contacting people in the order that they first expressed their interest in a plant. To keep it fair, we therefore ask that you please don't share this page and limit your order to a maximum of 2 plants. We will be monitoring the sales closely to keep it fair for everyone.

Thanks again for your patience.

Please note that as pictured these really are young plants and we've tried to show on the tape measure the size to expect on delivery. In a warm sunny spot they will grow on well during the summer months and be ready to start harvesting the first leaves from in 2023.

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.

These young plants have recently been repotted and will be quite happy in there existing pots until at least next Summer. Over winter be careful not to over water, watering only a small amount when the top of the soil dries out completely. In the spring and summer as they start to put on new growth you will need to water more often and you might want to add a general purpose feed to the water every few waterings to encourage growth.

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.
