Kaffir limes are mainly prized for their fragrant leaves but the juice and the zest of the fruit can be used in cooking too. The fruits have the same complex flavours as the leaves so are an unusual but still tasty edition to a gin and tonic!
Current Description
These bushy kaffir limes are looking really good with a neat shape and a mass of fragrant leaves for cooking - just as pictured. They are not currently in fruit or flower but we would expect them to flower again later in the year.
45cm tall in a 2L pot

This evergreen bush (Citrus hystrix) is grown for the wonderful flavoured leaves. It will live happily inside or in a conservatory in the winter and in the summer can make a striking patio plant. However, it is not frost hardy.

Like all citrus trees these Kaffir Lime needs lots of light and a stable environment. A cool room is best, protected from radiators and cold draughts.

Whilst in a small pot it will need regular watering, and will appreciate some citrus feed every few weeks over the summer. With citrus, it is also best to water from the top allowing any excess water to drain away. Your Kaffir lime should never be allowed to sit in water and the top of the soil should be allowed to dry out completely between waterings particularly in the winter months.

Young plants are grown for their leaves but mature plants can produce wonderful rough skinned limes which are also used in Oriental cooking. Plants can be repotted in the spring or summer if they are starting to out grow their existing pots- a citrus compost is best as it needs acid soil. Over time you may wish to prune this bush in the winter to keep a compact shape.

Sudden changes in environment, under or over watering can all cause leaf drop however with a return to regular watering and a stable temperature they will usually recover well. The glossy leaves of the kaffir lime can pick up dust marks, if your plant develops dark grey marks over time they are likely to be dust or water marks which can easily be rubbed off with a clean cloth.

The kaffir lime leaves are a very popular spice in Thai cuisine and combines well with ginger, garlic and chilli to flavour soups, stir-fries and curries.
