Customer Tips & Reviews Curry Tree
LESCHENAULT, WA, Australia
It's almost a weed - but a very pretty one at least. I try hard to snip off all the seeds so that they can't be spread by the birds. It suckers also - but it serves it's purpose.

TAYLORS LAKES, VIC, Australia
Really useful in my curries. Very low maintenance. Grows well in a pot on my front porch.
When growing curry pants it needs calcium so one source is to put crushed egg shells on the soil where it grows.
I have transplanted my curry tree twice due to its increasing height and width. I now have it in the front yard facing west full sun and we experience frost in winter, neither full sun or frost have had any negative effect. WATER AND FERTILIZE REGULARLY.
I have mine situated on the west side of my block full sun and open to all the winds in Melbourne, frost and heat tolerant, water regularly and fertilize regularly (crushed rock minerals and citrus/fruit fertilizer)removed berries to stop mass seedlings.
WIGHTS MOUNTAIN, QLD, Australia
Easy to grow, but suckers readily and seeds spread if fruit not removed. Current plant in pot is a seedling from a larger plant ripped out due to its invasiveness in the garden.
I deep fry curry leaves in oooking oil for a few minutes to create my own aromatic curry leaf oil for cooking and for salads. The flowers have a lovely scent, just like jasmine. My plant grows better in the garden than it did in a pot.
Feed your potted curry tree with used coffee grounds. It gives the plant a boost and it will grow profusely.
Same here. I live in PEI, Canada. I kept them indoor. I have 6 4-feet plants and twenty some shorter ones. I cook with their leaves.
I have 2 curry leaf trees potted indoors, I live in Chicago so I can't plant them outdoors. I cook using the leaves and enjoy them as indoor plant
This wonderful culinary herb can also helps reduce weight,lowers bp,choestoral, blood sugar when eaten raw by chewing early morning regularly. I eat daily.

Once established, this tree tripled in size in one season, despite regularly harvesting the leaves.
I have heard from older people in Pakistan that if you soak four curry leaves in half a glass of water every nite, drink it in morning and eat one leaf for 15days it lowers high blood pressure.
For cooking curries of course!Is happily growing inside on the ktichen window sill.

The shiny-black fruits are liked both by children and adults. As revealed by the chemical composition of the fruits, they are very nutritious. The leaves are used as a spice in different curries and impart a very good flavour to the preparations. These fruits have also many medicinal properties
Cut the seeds off as soon as they appear - wil stop invasiveness.
This is the most invasive tree I have ever seen. I am constantly having to remove sprouting seedlings from around the tree to prevent my entire front yard from being taken over by baby curry trees.

Grew in a pot where it just grew tall but not bushy. Nipped out the top, has never really got that bushy but is healthy.
EATONS HILL, QLD, Australia
Grows very well in a pot. Lovely to be able to pick your own leaves to cook curries.
