Looking for Kaffir Limes

lex | Aug 4, 2003 12:15 PM

A friend has recently returned from a trip to Seattle and up the west coast to Vancouver. She says that she was served Kaffir Limes somewhere on the trip and they were great. Now she wants to find them here.

Does any one know if (or where) we can get Kaffir Limes in the GTA? The limes themselves, not the leaves.

My observation has been that fresh Kaffir Lime leaves have only become available in the downtown Chinatowns over the last 2-3 years, (prior to that I saw them frozen & dried but couldn't find them fresh). I've never seen, or identified, the lime itself.

Has anyone seen them in town?
