Product Description

The aromatic leaves of this plant are used to flavor many Indian dishes much like bay leaves, especially in curries with fish or coconut milk. The original Indian word "Kari" refers to the sauce of these piquant dishes, hence the name curry leaf. Curry leaves are extensively used in Southern India and Sri Lanka, but are also of some importance in Northern India. Together with South Indian immigrants, curry leaves reached Malaysia, South Africa and Reunion island. An easy to raise plant, that needs full sun, grows to 1-3 feet in containers, minimum temperature 55 degrees, blooms in summer. Use a soil mix consisting of 1 part peat moss to 2 parts loam to 1 part sand or perlite. The soil should be allowed to thoroughly dry between waterings. The plant should be moved indoors during the winter months except in Southern Florida. Water sparingly during the winter months and do not fertilize during these months.

I got my starter from this company 2 years ago. It grew and I had curry leaves abundantly. Now when they die off, and they will, its only going dormant. WAIT!!! The new leaves will grow back ! I was panicking when my little tree started losing leaves. But I didn't throw it away because someone told me they will come back. I held on. Then one day the little buds grew on the sides and before a month was gone, the entire tree had leaves again. Its time for a bigger pot with fresh soil too. So many people I know need these sprigs of leaves for their dishes; I can't wait to share!
Thank you for such a great product. Maybe one day I will get another! The leaves are shiny and if you rub the leaves they emit the curry smell we all love. Also this year, it is blossoming little flowers, so that means seeds!!!

Arrived early ahead of schedule and in good shape. After a few days it was replanted and is "doing Great!" per the birthday boy recipient. BTW, we have a mature plant with lots of tiny sprouts. Tried many times to replant the sprouts without success. This gift plant was much appreciated by a curry lover who was without curry leaves for flavoring!Thanks!!

I ordered this for a dear friend, and it arrived, about 5 inches tall. I followed the planting and care instructions, watching it for several weeks, but I'm worried it isn't going to make it. It appears to still be in shock.
