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

We have lots of these very special plants growing on at our Sussex nursery but the current batch just need a little longer before they are ready to sell. You are welcome to pre-order your plant for delivery from June onwards or check back here for an update in a few weeks time.

Known by many names included Bergera koenigii, murraya, curry leaf, sweet neem, kari­veppilai, kari­patta or karhi-pat. This is the true curry leaf that is a key ingredient in a number of dishes from south east Asia. Particularly prized by chefs and cooks this is a herb that is hard to get hold of in the UK at it's best when used fresh.

These are the youngest of our curry leaf plants, and we've tried to show on the tape measure the expected size on delivery. In a warm bright spot they will put on lots more new leaves this summer.

25cm tall including the 1L pot

The Curry Leaf Tree (Bergera or 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.
