Curry Leaf Tree (Murraya koenigii) potted tree, organic

(14 customer reviews)


Family:  Rue (Rutaceae)

Outdoor culture Zones 10 to 12.  Commonly grown as a potted plant on the summer patio, brought in for the winter.  Protect from frost.

(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. The curry tree leaves (which should be confounded neither with the compound spice “curry” nor the curry plant (Helichrysum italicum), are used as spiritual offerings and lend their unique taste and aroma to Indian cuisine. 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.  Plant prefers sun to part shade and rich, moist but well-drained soil.  Keep them warm, give bright light at a minimum of 6 hours per day, good air circulation and water sparingly during winter.

    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.
