Where can I get some Kaffir lime seeds?

kusuAugust 9, 2008


I.m from Mexico, I started to take thai cooking, but here in Mexico is very hard to find, if not impossible the kaffir lime leaves. I'm going to be in Dallas in September and i would really love to come back here with some seeds.

Does anyone know where I can buy some?

I don't think the tree will survive the flight, I was thinking more like seeds to plant them here.

I think you should buy the seed and try to raise the kaffir lime tree.

But if you want to buy the kaffir lime leaves, it might survive the journey home 4 or 5 days.

One of the tip is to wrap the kaffir leaves with old newspaper.

Kusu, I've missed this thread since I haven't visited here for awhile. Looks like I missed your trip to Dallas back in September.

I'm in Houston and I have a small tree that had fruits this year. The fruits fell off and for some reason, I haven't thrown out the fruits. I just placed them on this table in the patio.

If you still need the seeds, please send me an e-mail with your mailing address. I'll be glad to send the seeds to you. Don't worry about the cost. Please put GardenWeb on the subject; otherwise, it'd go to the spam mailbox.

Does anyone know where to get thornless kaffir seeds? I saw some in Thailand and once at a local grocery store in Washington state.
