Curry-leaf Tree (Murraya koenigii)
(Black Neem, Sweet Neem)
Tropical to sub-tropical deciduous tree to 18 feet, native to Southern India . The pinnate leaves are handsome, as are the small, white, fragrant flowers that give way to clusters of black berries. The curry tree leaves (which should be confused neither with the compound spice “curry” nor the curry plant (Helichrysum italicum)), are used as spiritual offerings and lend their unique taste and aroma to Indian cuisine. Medicinally, the leaves are employed as an antinauseant and stomachic. Plant prefers sun to part shade and rich, moist but well-drained soil. The plant must be protected from frost, and is a reasonable choice for outdoor cultivation in Southern California, the Gulf Coast, Florida and of course Hawaii and other tropical places. Otherwise, it does well as a potted plant, kept indoors during the cold months. Keep them warm, give bright light at a minimum of 6 hours per day, and water sparingly. Organically grown potted plant
