Garden Sorrel


Rumex acetosa

Garden Sorrel, also known as English Sorrel, produces lime-green leaves full of tangy, kiwifruit-like flavor. They are delicious in salads, soups and sandwiches, and frequently prepared as you would spinach.

The perennial plants grow quickly to 12-18 in. tall, and will provide fresh leaves in spring, summer and fall. Flavor is mildest in spring, becomes increasingly sharp as leaves mature. Winter hardy to zone 3.
