Product Overview

Rumex acetosa

One of the earliest spring greens; add to salads for a lemony spinach flavor. Enjoyed in Europe for hundreds of years.

John Evelyn, a 17th century gardener and author, wrote that sorrel imparts "so grateful a quickness to the salad that it should never be left out". Popular in France and England for centuries, this wonderful green is underused in the U.S., and unjustifiably so; its spring leaves can be used as salad greens, as a complement to fish, or mixed in with spinach or chard. Very high in vitamin C. Sorrel stays green even after frost, so you will have many months of harvests!

Variety Info

Green, crinkled, arrow-shaped leaves with lemony spinach flavor
