Curry leaves in Mexico?

Does anyone know where could i buy curry leaves in Mexico? I live in Aguascalientes, that´s very close to Guadalajara, and I often visit Mexico City.

      yes! i´ve been there 3 or 4 times......sopa tarasca, corundas, mmm. i like Morelia very much and Pátzcuaro, and Nexpa......i hope safety problems in Morelia are addressed and solved.

    2. No guarantee, but you might try the Mercado San Juan, on Calle Ernesto Pugibet in Mexico City. There are Asian food stores adjacent and inside the market are Asian produce stands...and much more. We visited the store, "El Dragón de Oro" next to the mercado. The selection was limited, but I still found some usefull items.

      Be sure to look inside the mercado.

      Even if you don't find curry leaves, it's worth a visit.

        I'm growing a little curry leaf tree. Give it a year or so and I'll have leaves to spare.

            From a mail order house when I was in Austin, Texas. Can't remember the name but they specialize in Indian plants. I got three seeds, two germinated, one remains.
