Basal leaves grow from 3 - 6" long, with flower stalks reaching to around 4ft tall in bloom.
Prefers well drained soil and partial to full sun. Will tolerate almost all conditions.
Easy. Seeds can be started in the fall or spring, or anytime throughout the growing season. They can be direct seeded or started in flats and transplanted out.
One of the very first plants up in the spring, Sorrel begins producing tender new leaves very early in the season and continues until they bloom in midsummer. Once cut back the plants will re-grow for a fall/winter crop.
The leaves can be harvested year round for culinary use. The plants are most potent medicinally during their bloom time in summer.
Lovely lemony, tart leaves are wonderful fresh in salads or added to soups or sauces. Sorrel is very high in carotenoids, magnesium, iron, and vitamins C & A.
The sour taste of the leaves enhances digestion.
