Is the fruit on kaffi lime leaves edible

We would like to grow a kaffir lime tree but would also like a tree that we can use the fruit as well as leaves if possible?

Hi Adelle,

The kaffir lime fruit is edible however they are not often used as the fruit does not contain as much juice. The skin of the lime is slightly nobbly and not as easy to zest. If the tree is well looked after, fertilised and watered regularly, then the fruit will juicier.
