(Rumex acetosa) Sorrel is appreciated in native cuisines throughout Europe and in many parts of Asia and Africa as well. A perennial, it is available in early spring, before many annual crops have even been sown! The lemony tartness of the young succulent leaves gives a tangy twist to salads. Widely used in soups; combine with spinach for an authentic spanikopita. This cultivated variety with clear green leaves is much slower bolting than the wild species.

What are the pros? Prolific; perennial; sour

What are the cons? I think all my plants are male

Review:

I direct-seeded a whole pack of seeds in a raised bed with clay soil and partial shade. After quite a while, I got three plants (which were conveniently and coincidentally in a row). They didn't get a lot of growth the first year. Anyway, the next two years (especially this year), we got plenty of sorrel, but I think all the plants are male; because, we didn't get any seeds the second year (I cut off the seed stalks the third year). The plants grow leaves best in my area in the spring and the fall (and late summer). However, if you just let them grow without pruning them, you're less likely to get a fall harvest. I recommend cutting them down to the ground whenever you want lots of new growth (unless it's very hot and dry at the time). When the plants reach a certain size (and/or have tall seed stalks) they can stop growing. You can even get new sorrel growth in the summer, if you prune judiciously. They keep growing seed stalks in summer, though, but they do grow leaves with them.

What are the pros? Easy to Grow

Review:

This plant is my earliest memory of a garden. My Grandmother grew it and when we would go and visit her in Chicago we would always go back to her little garden and pull a few leaves and eat them together. I always knew it as "sour spinach" and when I started my own garden 2 years ago I tried finding it with no luck. Last year when I was looking thru the seeds here on rare seeds I came across the description and thought it had to be what it was. I bought some and planted them in my herb garden. Sure enough it is exactly like I remember it. Now I can share those memories with my kids... I planted in May and it's just now (Mid- Sept) producing enough to eat a leaf every few days.

Review:

I started this in the spring of 2014. It took a little care to get it started. It grew through the summer though the August weather was a bit hot for it so, I covered it with some make shift screening and it was happy with that. I mulched it with leaves and wood chips for the fall. It got a little frost bite when the temps went to 29 degrees. In the spring it went crazy. It has now gone to seed and I'm collecting the seeds and scatters some around the garden. Though it has gone to seed it is still bringing up new leaves that still taste very lemony. I have been thrilled with this plant.

What are the pros? Vigorous and pest free

What are the cons? None

Review:

Very slow going first year ... I didn't think it was going to make it. 2nd year more growth and healthier plant. Mine is planted in chemical free garden, rich compost (all green kitchen waste, brown leaves, rock dust - no animal product), and in full sun. 3rd year growth is nuclear! The plant looks like it's on steroids ... it's leaves are very large - some 15 inches long. A lot of new growth and it's size is still increasing ... this one plant almost needs it's own bed! Tasty in salads, smoothies, soups, pasta recipes - versatile, dependable producer.
