The fruit flesh is a light orange-yellow color, with juice sweeter than that of most lemons. Excellent for the Gulf Coast region. Full sun. Height: 10 – 12′.

Kaffir Lime

Kaffir Lime (Citrus hystrix) is primarily growns for its aromatic leaves (used in cooking). It is well suited to container growing. Both the fragrant fruits and leaves of this citrus play important roles in Thai cooking, imparting unique flavors that have become identified with the cuisine.
