Citrus Hystrix - Kaffir Lime

Pot size ⌀12cm


Kaffir lime blooms in spring, presenting a wonderful display of fragrant pink and white flowers…an exotic look for an exotic kitchen. The fruit will develop on more mature plants. When fully mature, the fruit is yellow but almost invariably it is harvested immature while still green. The Markut lime is small, with an unusual and distinct shape and rind of irregular and extremely bumpy texture. The rind is thick and its oil has a very pungent lime-like aroma when picked immature. Chefs find all sorts of uses for the rind, and leaves of this plant.
