Pinwheel curry tree

Very glad to find you tropical types!!!! I am searching for a few curry tree starts. It may be too late in the year but I would love to hear from anyone who could part with them. I used to live in Houston and have moved a few hundred miles north and can not find any tropicals to replace my kitchen garden. I had to leave mine behind. Please let me know if any are available, sorry I have nothing to trade. Jackie

Curry tree? That's a new one on me. Now, I've heard of a money tree. Unfortunately money doesn't really grow on trees, at least not on mine.

They grow it at a nursery located about a mile from my house. It can grow here in zone 10, but I'm not sure how well it would do in your zone. Do you plan to overwinter it?

My former boss born in India use to grow curry plants around his home in pensacola, FL. I am just a few miles north of him and I am not doing so well due to a slightly colder climate in part. He called me from Austin, TX where he has retired to saying that his plants did not do so well. I am in 8B. Myy plant is coming back now for me and next year I will mulch it to protect it from the cold. With a little luck maybe it will do better in the future.

Curry leaves can fetch a bit of money from members of the asian community.

Yes they do well in the house/garage from late fall to early spring. They become somewhat dormant and sometimes loose all their leaves but come spring....they come on like gang busters with foliage and very fragrant white flowers. They will send out little ones even before the seeds set so I know they can be quite prolific. In Houston you can buy them at the Indian grocers in the spring. Here the grocers need a different permit or designation. The leaves are wonderful to cook with. Every Indian family especially south India natives have them in their homes. I however have no Indian friends here. The Indians are great banana/plantain connoisseurs. Thank you for your replys, so nice to meet ya'll. Jackie

Curry Leaf (Bergera koenigii, syn. Murraya koenigii) was so named by the British because it smelled like Marsala sauce which they named "Curry". It was not used in cooking by the people of India until the British began importing the plant and introducing it in the recipe books they wrote in English.

Curry Leaf is the primary host of Asian Citrus Psyllid, carrier of Citrus Greening Disease. It is a highly regulated plant and quarantines on its movement exist in many parts of the U.S.

The Florida Nursery "Just Fruits and Exotics" was for a while IIRC was going to sell curry plants, but I do not see it on their site anymore. Perhaps it is the greening disease that made them stop.
