Herb Sorrel Lemon

Herb Sorrel Lemon. A fast growing and vigorous perennial herb (also known as lemon sorrel) dating back to medieval times, but seen less often now. The leaves are mild-flavored, like spinach but without the astringency that spinach often has.  Keep well-trimmed to encourage tender young leaves and remove any flowers as it will readily self-seed.
