Product Description

With its sharp citrus flavor, Sorrel is a great addition to salads, soups and smoothies, and can be harvested as a baby leaf or at full maturity. Also delicious when cooked, its arrow-shaped leaves give off a delightfully acidic flavor that pairs well with a number of dishes. This fast-growing, vigorous perennial herb is rich in vitamin C and is easy to grow. It shoots up from the ground even earlier in the spring than asparagus or rhubarb! Make this gem your first taste of spring for years to come. Plant in average, well-drained soil with access to full sunlight. It's great for container gardening, too; try it with your favorite containers, or give our Grow Tubs® a try. If you raise chickens, plant some extra to share since chickens adore these fresh greens. 60 days to maturity.
