Densely covered in glossy-green leaves producing small, pinkish-white flowers, followed by fruit that turns from light to deep green as it matures.  3-4 m H x width 3-4m W.

Fruit is very small with a thick, bumpy rind which when crushed emits an intense citrus fragrance. 

Grown for their highly aromatic leaves, Kaffir limes can be used for oil and zesting.  Fresh or dried leaves give a lemon flavour and appetising aroma to thai and other asian style cooking.  The limes are a key ingredient in many Southeast Asian recipes to flavour curries, garnish soups and salads.

Kaffir Lime is an attractive and very useful plant for home growers who love cooking or simply as a feature plant in smaller or Mediterranean style gardens.
