About the plant:
Citrus are plants from the Rutaceae family and originally come from tropical and subtropical parts of Southeast Asia and Australia. The majority are evergreen and heat-loving shrubs to trees with simple, almost leathery leaves. In good conditions (mainly in greenhouses) and in our conditions, they can bear fruit. In normal domestic conditions, it is rather rare. The plant blooms with small white to vanilla flowers, from which fruits can gradually emerge. The plant needs sunlight for healthy growth and in the summer it is possible to leave the plant outside, but avoid strong winds and drafts.
Citrus Hystrix or also Kaffir Lime ('Kaffir lime, Mauritian papeda') looks different on the stem than most other citrus. The plant looks beautiful with its shiny green double leaves, which are also used in Asia to add a distinctive flavor to dishes. Compared to other types of citrus, it is more thermophilic .
