Curry Leaf, also known as Sweet Neem is a small tropical/subtropical tree known for it's aromatic leaves. Curry Leaf is in the same family of plants as oranges, clementines, and limes (Rutaceae, the Citrus Fruit Family). Curry Leaf grows as a small tree with aromatic leaves.

This plant is primarily used as a culinary herb and cooking spice. Fresh leaves are usually added to rice or dried then powdered for use in Indian cuisine. The flavor is delightful and spicy! The fruit pulp can be eaten, but it shares the same flavor as the leaves. It's best used in cooking hot curry dishes. 

The plant is traditionally used in Ayurvedic medicine. It is claimed to help with the treatment of diabetes. Currently scientists are looking at an extract made from Murraya koenigii for use as a treatment against breast cancer. The primary constituent in Curry Leaf is cinnamaldehyde, which is also commonly found in cinnamon.
