Kaffir Lime (Citrus hystrix)
Highly sought after, this useful citrus tree is most often used for its aromatic leaves. If creative cooking appeals to your senses then you won’t want to be without Kaffir Lime in your collection. The popular Tom Yam soup in southeast Asian food would not be the same without the Kaffir Lime leaves. The leaves add the lemony flavor to foods while the rough skin that covers the fruit is used as a rind in curries. The plant has a spreading to sprawling habit and its shiny leaves are curiously segmented. This is a strong grower that is adaptable to varying cultural environment.

Container Grown Citrus

Keep the root systems healthy and active. A period of dryness helps stimulate flowers and fruiting. Mimic Florida’s climate- wet summers and dry fall/winters.


Most important for potted citrus:

• Full sun and high light. The more the better.
• For faster growth and an active root system,
   grow them warm.

• Do not over pot.
• Grow in clay pots for optimum root health.
• Fertilize spring through fall. 
• High light aids in flowering and fruiting.
• Fertilize in growing season 1-2 times a month.
• Water when the soil is visually dry or at first signs of wilt.



  1. Large healthy plant / excellent packaging Review by Wanda
    How do you rate this product?

    I was very impressed with the health of the kaffir lime tree I purchased, as well as the packaging. I ordered two plants separately. With a call, Logee's combined the shipping for me and refunded the extra paid. Wonderful service. (Posted on 4/22/2016)
