(68 customer reviews)

$8.95

Family: Rue (Rutaceae)

Hardy to Zones 10 to 12

(Black Neem, Sweet Neem)  Tropical to sub-tropical deciduous tree to 18 feet, native to Southern India.  The pinnate leaves are handsome, as are the small, white, fragrant flowers that give way to clusters of black berries.  Traditional use (Ayurveda): as a spicily aromatic culinary herb, stir-fried as a base for curries. Also as a medicinal herb:  upset stomach, nausea, constipation, diarrhea, dysentery, hepatitis, anemia, diabetes, heart disease and high cholesterol. Plant prefers tropical sun to part shade, fast-draining soils and regular watering. Best in tropical humidity but possible as an indoor plant or patio plant brought in for the winter.   This short-lived seed is delivered as soon as it is ripe and should be planted immediately upon receipt.  To plant you squeeze the seeds out of the berry, allow to dry slightly overnight, then plant in warm, fast-draining mix, in the light.  Water only when surface becomes completely dry.  Germ. in 10 to 20 days. Space trees 10 to 15 feet apart.

5 seeds per packet, Certified Organically Grown

Note:  Curry leaf seeds have no testa (seed coat) and are very short-lived and liable to damage once removed from the fruit.  Therefore, we have learned to ship these seeds in this manner:  The ripe berries are picked from the tree and shipped fresh. Upon receipt, remove the berries from the packet and squeeze each berry.  The seed will slip out easily.  Allow the seed to dry overnight and plant the next day, buried about 1/2 inch deep in fast-draining potting soil in a gallon pot, a deep flat or other suitable container.  Tamp securely.  Do not use paper towels or peat pots. Keep the planting in a warm, bright place (a solar greenhouse is best) and the seed will germinate and grow.  Germination takes 10 to 20 days.  It is common to attain 100% germination on curry leaf tree seeds. No replacements or refunds on curry leaf tree seeds.  Available inside the USA only.

    I had ordered the 5 seeds of curry leaf last year. I live in zone 6 and honestly speaking I had no hopes of anyone of the seeds sprouting. Seeds arrived around early September or so and after 2 months all 5 of them started sprouting. I have tiny curry leaf plants now. Thank you so much!!!

    I personally ordered 2 packages over a month ago, and 3 more at a reduced price yesterday (10/7/2020)… *****Extremely Excited*!!!! (Vancouver, WA. zone 8b/9a)
    Indoor grow with 4,200w total full spectrum LED’s w, UVB ultraviolet and infrared lights.
    10×10 grow west facing room inside apartment.
    Bring indoor Curry Sweet Neem and other medicinal tropical/ subtropical/ frost sensitive, select choice herbs to the outside slowly in mid spring generally, and especially; on a nice warm fair day!!! *****CAUTION and Maintenance*: Bring back inside by twilight always, until nighttime temperatures consistently go no lower than 50`F. When that happens, most of those tender herbs should be fine; although for an extra caution one should keep in high priority to make a point to always bring back inside before dark for at least the first month after the initial low 50’s nights; due to acclimatation from 60`F+ nights inside indoor grow setup.
    An dehumidifier, fans, dechlorinated water, organic healthy and free draining soil medium, ventilation, decent lights, thermal mass, micro acclimatation and aromatic herbs are critical to success!!
    *****Will be updating review in late winter*
    Thank you Richo!! So very much! That goes for all Strictly Medicinal LLC. staff, along with all the Cech family and friends of the Earth!!!
    Thank YOU!

    Ordered 30 seeds, got 35 plants

    Awesome germination rate. I ordered 30 seeds and have 35 plants growing. Some pods had more than 1 seed. I live in Michigan and it is too cold so sprouted and intend to grow indoors. Slow growing, planted all in plastic food grade tray about 18×24″ and 5″ deep with high grade potting soil. Put tray in enclosed area (with trash bags for walls) with heater underneath to keep plants warm and light above. First plant appeared about 2 weeks. Watered when soil top looked dry. When there were about 5 plants that could be seen I dropped the entire tray on the floor, soil everywhere. I found every seed had germinated a 3-4″ single taproot with tiny short side roots before they popped above the soil. Plants looked like a single stick pointing up but each had round leaf petals under the soil so when I replanted I put the round petals above soil so the round petals helped with photosynthesis. Figured out plants benefit from deep soil so I bought plastic nursery bag containers (ebay) with drain holes in the bottom 5″ wide and 12″ tall like some videos on youtube show. If you dont see plants after 14 days it may be beneficial to pour the soil out, look for germinated seeds with long tap root, and replant with bulk of green leaf petals above ground.
