Hello all. I just moved to fort lauderdale about 3 months ago. I am looking to buy a kaffir Lime tree. Does anyone know of a local source here in south florida?
Scott, not necessarily in your part of Florida, but Brite Leaf does carry the Kaffir lime. You can order through them if you can't find a local nursery that has the Kaffir.
Here is a link that might be useful: Brite Leaf: Citrus Varieties
This Thai food herb also goes by some aliases. Citrus hystrix Ichang lime, and makrut lime to name a few.
It is one of those often transported illegally into Texas along with curry leaf plants.
It is very freeze intolerant.
I realize this is quite an old posting, but I just bought one at Tropic Plants on University Dr in Tamarac. Trust me, it's worth the drive. Fantastic selection of tropical fruit trees not commonly sold and ask about a tour of the rear garden. It's amazing.
