Curry Leaf Tree: Aromatic Pop

Culinary Purposes:

The Curry Leaf Tree (Murraya koenigii) is renowned for its culinary significance, particularly in South Asian cuisine. Its aromatic leaves impart a distinctive, citrusy flavor with hints of nuttiness, enhancing various dishes such as curries, soups, stews, rice dishes, and chutneys. These leaves are a staple in Indian, Sri Lankan, and Malaysian cooking, adding depth and complexity to culinary creations.

Medical Purposes

Curry leaves are valued not only for their culinary attributes but also for their potential health benefits. They are rich in antioxidants, vitamins A, B, C, and minerals like calcium, iron, and phosphorus. In traditional medicine, curry leaves have been used for their anti-inflammatory, anti-diabetic, and digestive properties. They are believed to aid in digestion, improve skin and hair health, and regulate blood sugar levels.

What to Know About the Plant

The Curry Leaf Tree is an evergreen shrub or small tree characterized by its glossy, dark green leaves. These compound leaves are pinnate, consisting of 11-21 leaflets, and emit a fragrant aroma reminiscent of curry when crushed. The tree typically grows up to 6-15 feet in height, making it suitable for both outdoor landscapes and container gardening. It thrives in warm, tropical climates and is moderately drought-tolerant once established.

Enhancing Your Fruitscape™

Incorporating the Curry Leaf Tree into your fruitscape design offers a harmonious blend of edibles and ornamentals. It pairs well with a variety of fruit trees, such as citrus (e.g., lemon, lime, orange), mango, and guava, complementing their tropical flavors with its aromatic leaves. Berry plants like strawberries or blueberries can also thrive alongside the Curry Leaf Tree, adding color and diversity to the landscape. Furthermore, herbs like basil, mint, and cilantro, which are commonly used in conjunction with curry leaves in culinary applications, create a cohesive and functional edible garden space. Whether planted directly in the ground or in containers, the Curry Leaf Tree contributes to a vibrant and flavorful fruitscape that delights the senses year-round.

Fruitscaping with Herbs & Veggies

Every good kitchen garden needs to have an herb section. A walk through a garden planted with herbs is truly a sensual experience. Their beautifully textured leaves invite you to stop and touch them, and then reward you with a delightful array of heavenly scents. Herbs can serve many functions in the edible landscape, creepers like oregano, mints and thyme make great ground cover. Low growers like sage, chives and perennial onions are good for edging flower beds and will help in insect control. Taller evergreens like rosemary are wonderful used as low hedges or for planting around the foundation of houses. Herbs also lend themselves well to being grown in containers. Tuck a few pots close to the kitchen so they’ll be handy when you need them.

Growing your own herbs is well worth the effort. The quality and flavor of fresh picked herbs is so much better than the dried products you find in the grocery store. Our climate makes it possible to grow a very wide range of herbs. The hot humid summer are perfect for herbs like basil, Thai ginger and tea camellias. Try the more Mediterranean herbs like lavender,  sage and Thyme in the winter time, they love the cool and are less apt to succumb to fungus.

Shipping Information

Before Your Plants Arrive: You can find many guides on unpacking, planting, & care, on our growing guides page.

The Journey From Our Nursery to Your Door:  We NEVER ship our plants bare root. Your plant will travel in the very container in which it was nurtured. We thoroughly prune and water them before packing, and make sure they’re well wrapped to retain moisture during transit. It’s as though you’ve personally collected them from our nursery!

Choose Your Ship Date: We understand you’ll want to be available when your plant arrives. Our checkout process features a handy calendar that allows you to choose the Monday on which you want your plant to ship. Depending on your location, you’ll likely receive your plant by Wednesday, Thursday, or Friday of that week. Once shipped, UPS will generate a tracking number and send it to the email you provided. You can then follow your plant’s journey and ensure someone is available to unpack it on arrival day.
