Sorrel Herb
Common sorrel or garden sorrel
Latin name: Rumex acetosa
Sorrel is a perennial herb that is cultivated as a garden herb or leaf vegetable. Also
called a pot herb as it is easily grown in pots.
The leaves may be pureed in soups and sauces or added to salads.
They have a flavor that is similar to kiwifruit or sour wild strawberries.
Plant from seed or cuttings in deep, sandy loam. Well-drained soil that is slightly raised is preferable. Plant four to six seeds on a mound or hill, and space the hills 3 to 6 feet apart in rows 5 to 10 feet apart. When two or three leaves develop, thin by 50 percent.
