Rumex acetosa

Large Leaf Sorrel has a tangy lemon-like flavour. The bright green, oblong leaves & greenish yellow to red flowers of this sorrel variety grow atop long, narrow stems with a habit similar to spinach. Sorrel is easy to grow in cool months, it tends to spread & has a long history as a herb & is used fresh & raw in Asian cuisine, lending its strong flavour in small amounts. In parts of Africa, it is added with spinach to meat stew. In western recipes, it is more often cooked as a green in soup or in cream sauce with fish or chicken, or as a wrap to tenderized meat or fish. Harvest side leaves on small plants & full leaf cutting above the crown on mature plants. High in vitamin C. Easy to grow in pots.

Matures in 60 – 80 days. Direct sow after last frost. May be divided after the second year. Avoid planting in a vegetable garden, Sorrel is a strong seeder and competitiveness will allow it to spread. Part shade with moist well-drained soil.
