  kaffir lime (makrud)

 

Thailand

Kaffir lime or kieffer lime, known in Thai as makrud, is a kind of lime with a knobby rind. The leaves off the plant it grows on are known as kaffir leaves and typically grow vertically in pairs, one on top of the other, somewhat like the shape of a hourglass (fig.).
