Description

Sorrel - - Rumex acetosa

Perennial Heirloom. Sorrel shows up early and stays late in your garden, offering lemony leaves at the beginning of spring through the end of fall. Perennial in USDA zones 4-9. For the best flavor, pick the leaves when young, succulent, and tender. Sorrel adds citrusy brightness to salads and as an accent to rich fish or dairy dishes. It is a traditional source of cool-season Vitamin C.

Did You Know?  Sorrel is also called "Lemonade In A Leaf" due to its citrusy, refreshing flavor.

Soil & Water: Grow in rich soil high in organic matter and nitrogen. They perform best with consistent moisture; drier conditions will increase the intensity of flavors.
