The curry leaf tree (Murraya koenigii) is a small bush or tree that only grows 13 to just under 20 feet (4 to just under 6 m.) in height. The plant is tropical to sub-tropical and produces small fragrant white flowers that become small, black, berry-like fruits. The fruit is edible, but the seed is poisonous and must be removed prior to use. The foliage is the real standout; it’s arranged alternately on the stem and pinnate, and is comprised of many leaflets. The aromatic scent is spicy and heady and best when the leaves are fresh.
