Growing Tips
Curry Leaf Trees are tropical plants but will grow in cooler climates if kept in a warm area through the winter. The trees sucker vigorously, so if space is limited growing in a pot is a good option. They grow well in a pot and make an attractive plant for a verandah or outdoor area.

Leaves are used in curries, vegetable dishes, chutneys, pickles. The leaves are often fried first in oil before other spices are added. Curry Leaves are now also used in Malaysia and Indonesia mainly in fish curries. Use the leaves on the BBQ to add a warm, smokey, spicy flavour to fish, meat and potatoes. Simply pile a large handful of leaves onto the BBQ plate and place the fish or meat on top and cook covered with a deep lid from a large pan.
