Garden Sorrel or Sour Dock (Rumex acetosa) Perennial--Delicious tart leaves are yielded spring thorough autumn; are used both fresh and cooked. The tangy, lemony flavor is caused by the high oxalic acid content in the leaves. Consumed in moderation, the thirst-quenching leaves are safe and nutritious, but excessive consumption should be avoided. Attracts wildlife, and if perfect for wild areas at the edge of the garden. The juice of the leaves has been used as a curdling agent for milk; seed and roots are also edible. Not the least bit fussy as to growing conditions--thrives in sun or part shade, acid soils and wet ground that supports little else. (Check shipping restrictions.)

Review:

It germinated very well, and even was doing well in 100% shade (in the raised bed under the deck) but unfortunately squirrels loved it! I know I would have got a crop already to use for soups and pies, only it has been so badly eaten that I'm still waiting for it to recover 3 weeks after I covered it with a birds protective net. Other than that I know it is going to grow forever in the same location, and come back easily every time I harvest it all with scissors. Maybe I'll plant more next year in a more sunny location.

What are the pros? Easier to use than Lemongrass

Review:

This is a very interesting way to include the taste of lemon in hot dishes that are Asian, Italian, or Mediterranean. Only about 1/2 cup chopped from Spring picking is good. My plant stands about 2 foot high. I have to keep cutting the long stalks that form seeds in the summer to prevent overgrowth and invasion. This is a real sturdy perennial that likes full sun and only average watering schedule.
