Cultivation & harvest

Sorrel grows in sunny or semi-shady places with sufficient moisture. A loose soil additionally favors the growth of the plant.


Fresh sorrel leaves are perfect for adding to salads. Chopped finely and steamed, the vegetable can also be served as an accompaniment. Sorrel tastes particularly good with fish and pork. Sorrel is used as a sour seasoning for soups and broths.


Sorrel can be stored for a long time in a dried state. For this purpose, bunches are tied from the leaves and then hung in a dry, warm place.
