Curry Leaf Plant

Murraya koenigii 

The aromatic leaves of this plant are used to flavor many Indian dishes much like bay leaves, especially in curries with fish or coconut milk. The original Indian word "Kari" refers to the sauce of these piquant dishes, hence the name curry leaf. Curry leaves are extensively used in Southern India and Sri Lanka, but are also of some importance in Northern India. Together with South Indian immigrants, curry leaves reached Malaysia, South Africa and Réunion island. An easy to raise plant, that needs full sun, grows to 1-3 feet in containers, minimum temperature 55°, blooms in summer. Use a soil mix consisting of 1 part peat moss to 2 parts loam to 1 part sand or perlite. The soil should be allowed to thoroughly dry between waterings.  The plant should be moved indoors during the winter months except in Southern Florida. Water sparingly during the winter months and do not fertilize during these months. Regular variety is fast growing matte leaves, while the glossy leaved variety have shiny leaves, much slower growing, more fragrant.

The fruit, known as a peppercorn when dried, is dark red when fully mature and contains a single seed. Black pepper is the world's most ubiquitous and traded spice, and is found and used in cuisines all around the world.

Keep plant in partial shade since it cannot stand direct sunlight.  Give it plenty of water, however make sure that the pot drains well, since the plant is prone to root rot.  It also prefers high humidity and hot temperatures.  The pepper fruit is harvested before maturity and dried in the hot sun. After drying it becomes wrinkled and black.
