The Curry Leaf Tree produces leaves with a very distinct strong curry smell when crushed.  These leaves are often used in cooking to give a warm, curry flavour to many Indian dishes.  

During spring and summer is produces clusters of fragrant creamy white flowers, these are followed by small black berry-like fruit.  The berries are edible, but not the seeds inside.

It is an evergreen bush/small tree that grows to approx. 6 metres. 

Prefers a warm sub-tropical/tropical climate, full sun, and well drained soil.  It will tolerate light shade, and less well drained soils; once established it will tolerate occasional mild frosts and moderate drought.

Sow seed approx. 5mm deep in Spring, Summer.  Germination approx. 6 weeks. The seeds germinate easily and in warmer areas it has the potential to become a bushland weed if left unchecked.  Suitable for pots.  

5 seeds per packet
