LOCAL CUSTOMS CLEARANCE AND OTHER LEAGAL REGULATIONS ARE AT THE RISK AND CARE OF THE BUYER. The curry tree (Murraya koenigii) is a tropical to sub-tropical tree in the family Rutaceae (the rue family, which includes rue, citrus, and satinwood), which is native to India and Sri Lanka. http://indiabiodiversity.org/species/show/264262 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 Reunion island. An easy to raise plant, that needs full sun, grows to 1-3 feet in containers, minimum temperature 55 degrees, blooms in summer. Use any commercial soil mix that is peat or coir based. The soil should be allowed to thoroughly dry between watering https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=na9XeH2Cicg ... Planting & Care Curry leaf plants may be grown from cuttings or seed. The seed is the pit of the fruit and can either be cleaned or the entire fruit may be sown. Fresh seed shows the greatest rate of germination. Sow the seeds in potting soil and keep them damp but not wet. They will need a warm area of at least 68 degrees Fahrenheit (20 C.) to germinate. Growing curry leaf tree from seed is not an easy task because germination is fickle. Other methods are more consistent. Sunlight: The curry leaf tree performs best when grown under full sun exposure but it should be gradually acclimated to full sun exposure as during hot summer months it can be sunburned when temps are above 100* F especially when the plant is container grown. Soil: Curry leaf requires moderately moist soil. Fertilizer: I would fertilize the curry leaf plant once a month from March to October
