Join us at the Garden Pool for this special FREE class about the amazing Indian Curry Leaf plant.
The Indian Curry Leaf (Murraya koenigii) has been used for centuries for cooking and natural medicinal properties.The leaves are highly valued as seasoning in west-coast Indian and Sri Lankan cooking, especially curries. Often fried in oil along with chopped onions in the early stages of preparation. Also used to make thoran, vada, rasam and kadhi. Leaves from the curry tree can be used in many other dishes to add flavor.
Indian Curry leaf trees are easy to grow and adapt well to many climates. Can be grown in sun or part shade, and even container grown on a patio or green house, and even indoors by a sunny warm window. In the landscape they can grow to about 12-15 feet tall, but can be pruned to any shape or size. Outdoor in zone 9 or higher.
We are pleased to have a special guest speaker and friend of GP, Wilmot. Wilmot is originally from Sri Lanka and is a Master Gardener in Tucson, and member of the California Rare Fruit Growers, Arizona Chapter in Phoenix and Tucson.
The class will focus on three parts:
- How to grow Indian Curry Leaf
- How to cook with Indian Curry Leaf
- Medicinal properties of the Indian Curry Leaf.
We will have plenty of organically grown Indian Curry Leaf starter plants available for those who want to start growing their own Indian Curry Leaf Plant!
