Dwarf Lime - Kaffir

This is a "must have" tree for making Thai curries. Also, can add 5-6 leaves to fried rice for an excellent alternative. Mine is happily growing in a pot w full sun. Treat citrus leaf miner & grass-hopper with Yates Pyrethrum / Pest Oil every 2-3 weeks | Eric - Banora Point, NSW 30-Jul-2019
