Hi,
A friend is keen to grow "kaffir lime" in order to have fresh leaves for
Thai cooking rather than frozen or dried.  I haven't been able to find
what species this is: possibly not the same as the lime fruit (Citrus
aurantiifolia)?  Where is it cultivated (only Thailand?)?  Any plants in
Australia?
Thanks,
Frank.
