It is important to note that Sorrel needs a bit of light to germinate. Do not cover the seeds with more than a dusting of soil. French Sorrel is an amazing old heirloom leafy herb that needs to be in every garden. Very tender and sweet. The Egyptians consumed Sorrel, as did the Greeks, Romans, and Germanic tribes. Aids in digestion, and is loaded with vitamins C and A. I use it in salads and as an addition to soups and stews. Sorrel goes particularly well with salmon and other fish. 60 days to maturity.
