    happy with my Curry Leaf

    Diana L Law (verified owner)

    It got buggy and lost it’s leaves indoors in the winter, I’ll check for scale earlier next winter, but I was thrilled to see new growth in late Spring and now it’s happily outdoors for the summer. Grew like a trouper.

      Hi Diana,
      This is totally typical. Scale can be super bad on these, and whole branches need to be trimmed at times, and follow the ants. Thank you for perservering–eventual happy growth is also typical, but only when the right conditions are maintained. Richo

      Hi Kiran,
      They are $20.00 each and in our standard 3-inch pots. They look very similar to the opening photo on the page. They are healthy and growing quickly right now. I would hurry, a bit surprised these have not already sold out.

      We have these all the way from 1 inch seedlings to 12 inch 2-year-olds. Early orders always get the largest plant.

      Such a wonderful plant…would wear the cologne if anyone made it! My favorite for cooking Indian food! When is early ordering time in order to get the larger size plants? I live in zone 9. Very fun to get this from Willits…used to live very near there as a child, many moons ago & just visited this past June…wish I had known you all were there then! Tks for reply!

      Hi Mary, It does have a strangely enticing fragrance. We’re in Williams, not Willits. Significantly further north. I’ll try to e-mail you when this all shakes down and we see if we have any plants left.

    Yes, they are used as spiritual offerings and lend their unique taste and aroma to Indian cuisine. However, they should be confounded neither with the compound spice “curry” nor the curry plant(Helichrysum italicum).

      Hello, Right now it is Late February in 2019 and we have plants ranging from 1 inch to 10 inches. The plants grow rapidly, and by the time we start selling them in the spring they should be sized-up, ready to transplant to gallon pots on receipt. r
