Farm On Central Sorrel  Crowns

Product Description:

Sorrel, scientifically known as Rumex acetosa, is a versatile and tangy herb that carries a rich heritage as a beloved ingredient in global cuisines and traditional remedies. Historically recognized for its health benefits, including being a spring tonic, a remedy for diarrhea, a mild diuretic, and a soothing agent for irritated nasal passages, Sorrel's culinary use is equally noteworthy.

Before the introduction of citrus in Europe, Sorrel was the go-to herb for imparting a sour flavor in dishes during the Middle Ages. Its culinary journey spans continents, highlighting its versatility in a myriad of traditional dishes across Europe including borscht, spanakopita, meatballs, and even curries.

Grown using organic methods, these crowns give you a head start on a large, rubust plant for your garden or perennial beds. The plant is approximately 18-24" tall and will grow well in full sun to partial shade. 

Key Features:

  • Grown using organic methods: Our Sorrel root crowns are cultivated with utmost care, avoiding any synthetic fertilizers or pesticides, ensuring your harvest is as natural as it can be.
  • Early Spring Green: Celebrated as one of the first plants to sprout in spring, Sorrel offers a refreshing, tangy flavor after the long winter months.
  • Healthful and Nutritious: Packed with vitamins A and C, along with essential minerals like potassium and magnesium, Sorrel is more than just a culinary herb—it's a boost to your daily nutrition.
  • Hardy and Perennial: Sorrel is incredibly resilient and can withstand diverse climates and soil conditions. Once established, it regrows each spring, promising a bountiful harvest year after year.

Growing Information:

  • Planting: Set the root crowns in the ground in early spring, choosing a spot with full sun to partial shade exposure.
  • Soil: Optimal growth is seen in well-drained, fertile soil with a pH of 5.5 to 6.8, though Sorrel is quite adaptable to various soil types.
  • Spacing: Ensure each crown is planted about 12-18 inches apart to allow ample space for growth.
  • Watering: Maintain consistent soil moisture, especially in dry periods, to promote lush, tender leaves. Mulch with woodchips or straw for less weeding and watering.
  • Harvesting: Begin harvesting the young leaves 6-8 weeks after planting. Regular picking before flowering ensures the leaves remain tender and less bitter.

Health Benefits:

  • Nutrient-Rich: Sorrel is a powerhouse of vitamins and minerals. Its high vitamin C content boosts immunity and skin health, while vitamin A supports vision and cellular growth.
  • Digestive Health: The fiber in Sorrel aids in digestion and contributes to a healthy gut.
  • Heart Health: The potassium in Sorrel can help manage blood pressure levels, supporting overall heart health.

Culinary Tips:

  • Refreshing Salads: Add young Sorrel leaves to salads for a refreshing, citrusy twist.
  • Flavorful Soups and Sauces: Use Sorrel to infuse a lemony zest into creamy soups or sauces, elevating their flavor profile.
  • Hearty Cooking: Cook mature Sorrel leaves with butter, salt, and pepper for a simple, yet richly flavored side dish.
