Welcome to Colonial Growers
We currently have over 1000 Kaffir Lime plants housed in a temperature controlled greenhouse facility in Ardleigh, near Colchester in Essex. The plants are tended 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.
A new heating system has been recently installed enabling us to grow fresh kaffir lime leaves for the full 12 months of the year.
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 leaves on a weekly basis for the last 8 years now and have seen their demand increase year on year. Leaves are picked, cleaned and despatched to their destination within 2 days thus ensuring produce arrives in peak condition. We have recently obtained a contract to supply a supermarket chain in Switzerland. Deliveries to any EU member countries can be undertaken - please contact us for further details.
We are one of the very few commercial growers of kaffir lime leaves in the UK and as the importation of fresh leaves is forbidden under DEFRA rules because of the risk of disease, the availabilty of totally fresh leaves is somewhat restricted. We are confident our products are the freshest available.
Colonial Growers are approved under the Red Tractor Farm Assurance scheme.
