Dwarf Lime with Delicious Fruit
Kaffir Lime, Citrus hystrix 'Kaffir', is a dwarf, fruit tree that produces highly prized citrus fruit. It thrives in potted environments, so would do well on your front porch or patio. The Kaffir Lime is also know as Kieffer Lime. Bring your tree indoors near a sunny window, and its intoxicating citrus scent will brighten your home during cold winter days.
As a patio plant or indoor houseplant, your Kaffir Lime is sure to bring a taste of the tropics to your home.
Your Kaffir Lime is a lovely little tree, with double-lobed, dark green leaves that catch the sun with their glossy sheen. The small, green limes produced by your Kaffir have a bumpy exterior, an attractive addition to an already exotic appearance.
Kaffir Lime is certainly a beautiful tree, but it is most sought-after for the exceptional fruit it produces. Both the leaves and fruit are highly aromatic with the lime itself possessing a fresh, tangy taste that is often said to be a one-of-a-kind lime flavor.
The fruit, leaves, zest, and juice are critical to a variety of culinary dishes, including Thai, Cambodian, and Indonesian cooking. Even the leaves are an essential ingredient for flavoring many dishes, and parts of the Kaffir are sometimes used for medicinal and insecticidal purposes.
Kaffir Lime will grow 7-10 feet in height, but can be easily pruned to 5 feet. It can be grown outdoors year-round in zones 9-10, but is best suited for indoors. It prefers a sunny window and moist soil.
