Product Description

Qualities:

The unique features of Butterly Sorrel lie in the shape and color of its leaves, resembling butterfly wings, with green edges, creamy yellow centers, and a unique fresh and tarty taste.

 

Butterfly sorrel is an edible plan that offers a unique taste experience. Its leaves have a tangy and tart flavor, reminiscent of lemon or sour apples. The sharpness of the taste adds a refreshing and zesty element to culinary creations. The bright and citrusy notes of butterfly sorrel make it a delightful addition to salads, soups, sauces, and various dishes where a touch of acidity and freshness is desired.

Care and Harvesting Tips:

Locate the mature leaves of the butterfly sorrel plant that you wish to harvest. These leaves are typically medium-sized and have distinct butterfly-shaped patterns with green edges and creamy yellow centers. Harvest the leaves when they are at their peak freshness. For the best flavor and tenderness, pick the leaves in the morning when they are crisp and full of flavor.

 

Gently grip the base of the leaf near the stem. Use a pair of clean gardening shears or scissors to snip off the leaves at the desired height, leaving enough foliage for the plant to continue growing and thriving.

 

Harvest the leaves only as needed, taking care not to remove too many leaves from a single plant. Allow the plant to maintain its foliage so it can continue photosynthesis and produce new growth.
