The scientific name of the curry plant is Murraya Koenigii Spreng and it belongs to the Rutaceae family. The most useful parts of this plant are the leaves, root and the bark. In Ayurvedic medicine, curry leaves are believed to have several medicinal properties such as anti-diabetic, antioxidant, antimicrobial, anti-inflammatory, anti-carcinogenic and hepato-protective (capability to protect liver from damage) properties. Curry leaves are natural flavouring agents with a number of important health benefits, which makes your food both healthy and tasty along with pleasing aroma. They contain various antioxidant properties and have the ability to control diarrhea, gastrointestinal problems such as indigestion, excessive acid secretion, peptic ulcers, dysentery, diabetes and an unhealthy cholesterol balance. They are also believed to have cancer fighting properties and are known to help protect the liver. Plant care: If you grow it indoors in a container (which is the best method for most colder zones,remember its a tropical plant), make sure you slowly increase the size of the container over the years as the plant grows. If it is container-grown and is in an area with excellent light and warmth in the winter, there is possibility that your curry leaf plant will not have a very long winter-resting period and might not even lose its’ leaves. If it is container-grown and you are planning on putting it outdoors in the warm months, be sure to acclimate it to full-sun exposure gradually and to also watch the plant carefully for sun burning issues if your weather goes over 100 degrees F. Curry leaf plant need full sun, well-drained and slightly acidic soil, and temperatures over 40 degrees F Since most people can only grow curry leaf in a container, it is important to stimulate your plant and keep it healthy with regular feedings of organic matters. During the winter season, your plant’s leaves might turn yellow. This usually means that the plant is about to go dormant and might lose its’ leaves. If your plant goes dormant/loses its’ leaves, cut back on watering in order to prevent root rot. Prune your plant once a year during the spring in order to keep your plant healthy and producing large amounts of good leaves. If you see berries appear on the branches of your plant, you probably want to pluck them off. This will encourage new leaf growth. If you leave them on, they will turn into beautiful and sweet-smelling flowers, but it also means your plant will be putting its’ energy into growing the flowers instead of the leaves. It is better to keep your curry leaf plant more on the dry side then to give them too much water. Let the soil dry out between watering. When you are transplanting your curry leaf plant to a bigger container, try not to break any roots. Add good quality potting soil to the new container as well. Curry Leaf is easy to harvest: simply pluck off leaves as you need them for cooking. These leaves have the best flavor when they are used fresh instead of dried. The more you harvest, the bushier the plant will become, meaning that harvesting encourages the growth for future harvesting. Enjoy the aromatic leaves and the beauty of this plant as well as the culinary aspects of this plant for years to come.
