Red Veined Sorrel Vegetable Seeds
500 Sorrel seeds. Sorrel leaves have a tangy taste, with hints of citrus. Commonly harvested as a baby leaf and used in salads, but can also be harvested when mature and cooked like spinach. Red-veined sorrel, Rumex sanguineus, has pointed, bright lime-green leaves with dark red veins. Leaves are best harvested when young and used raw in salads. Sorrel is easy to grow, producing masses of pale green leaves. It’s a hardy perennial so can be treated as a cut-and-come-again crop, and leaves may even be harvested in mid-winter.
