The Kaffir Lime leaf has very fragrant (when crushed or chopped) double leaf. This is the lime preferred for Thai cooking has leaves with a serrated edge (not smooth) and the new growth is dark purple. Fresh young green leaves are best in cooking.
The tree will produce a crinkly “alien” looking fruit, the zest of the fruit is extraordinarily flavoursome, and can be used to bring a exquisite limey flavour to dishes.
As a general rule our trees should fruit in the second autumn after you have planted them, given they receive good nurture and optimal conditions.
All of our Citrus trees are all grafted to appropriate rootstock, we use clean Aus Citrus virus indexed tested propagation material and budwood. You are assured of a premium, quality, professionally grown tree.
