Hi Angie and all,
Is this the true curry tree, Murraya koenigii or false, Clausena excavata now flowering and fruiting ?

Hi Steven,
Here's the false Curry Plant, Clausena excavata, plenty growing in BBCemy.
Leaves look like and smell like the real curry;
only when it flowers in panicles, and when the slightly oval fruits ripen pink!!
Hope the photo helps.
Cheers!

Angie,
Can the false curry leaves be used in cooking as well ?

Unlike the False Dill, Artimesia scoparia, which is used as a culinary herb or as a pretty hedge plant in gardens, Clausena excavata does not taste good.
I think it'll make your curry bitter!
