Citrus hystrix

For sale by BotanicalMinds

This grower is sure of this plant identification.

A large kaffir lime plant, most famously used in Thai and other South East Asian cookery.

The plant is grafed onto a comercial root stock, and was around £50 when half the size. It sadly needs a new home as it has out grown its current location.

Any questions please just ask...

Thanks

    My current largest interests are with rare tropical aroids and Zingiberaceae plants, although my love for Hoyas is growing fast...
