Colonial Growers is One of the Few UK Growers and Suppliers of Kaffir Limes, Leaves and Plants
Our Nursery Facility
We currently have over 400 kaffir lime plants housed in a temperature controlled greenhouse facility in Ardleigh, near Colchester in Essex. The plants are tended to daily and have a watering system which incorporates an in-line fertiliser feeding system to ensure only the highest quality leaves and fruit are produced.
We have recently formed an alliance with another professional grower of kaffir lime leaves in Portugal which has enabled us to offer product for the full 12 months of the year.
Our Kaffir Lime Products
We have supplied supermarkets and wholesale fruit and vegetable merchants in London’s Covent Garden and Spitalfields markets and merchants in other areas of the UK with fresh lime leaves on a weekly basis for the last 10 years now and have seen their demand increase year upon year. Leaves are picked, cleaned and despatched to their destination within 2 days thus ensuring produce arrives in peak condition.
We offer kaffir lime leaves, kaffir fruit, kaffir olive oil and live plants!
As the importation of fresh leaves from outside the EU is forbidden under DEFRA rules due to risk of disease, the availability of totally fresh leaves is somewhat restricted.
We are one of the very few commercial growers of kaffir lime leaves in the UK. We are confident our products are the freshest available. Deliveries to any EU member countries can be undertaken - please contact us for further details.
