KAFFIR LIME

The Kaffir Lime is a Southeast Asian citrus fruit, Citrus hystrix.  The zest of the pear shaped, wrinkled green fruit is used in cooking, as are the unusually formed leaves. The leaves have a unique double shape that looks like two leaves joined end to end. They have a citrus-floral aroma, with a very distinctive flavor.

Kaffir Lime juice is used in traditional Indonesian medicine.

According to my friend and his wife in Thailand, slices of the kafir lime are used as a deodorant in urinals.
