  • There has been some controversy surrounding one of the names of the Makrut lime, Kaffir, as it has derogatory connotations in South African and Middle Eastern cultures, which is why we prefer to simply call them Thai limes.
  • Thai limes are botanically classified as Citrus hystrix. 
  • Grows very well in containers outdoors or indoors.
  • Great choice for first time citrus growers who also like to cook. 
  • The leaves, zest, and juice are used in Thai, Cambodian, and Indonesian cooking.
