I actually learnt about this herb accidentally when I saw wild growth in my garden. Unfortunately, I had been pulling this herb thinking it is a weed. After happening to read about this wild, sour herb and doing some research on the photos from the internet, I understood that the plants were not actually weeds they were edible. I tried tasting it and found that I liked the lemony taste.
I really did not have to grow this herb in my garden. Wherever I put my eyes upon, this mischievous herb is already present. I took a photo of the wild sorrel and matched with the images on Google to conclude that it was indeed wood sorrel. The photo on this page is from my garden where I put my leisure hours, the effort is quite rewarding and I am looking forward to growing more herbs.
The appearance of garden sorrel is similar to shamrock a 3 leaf clover but there is a stark difference. The shamrock leaves seem to be concentrated even after they have grown fully but the leaves of sorrel grow apart.
I came across many common names of sorrel of which the prominent ones are –
Common Sorrel or Garden Sorrel
Garden Sorrel whose botanical name is Rumex acetosa is an herb that grows mostly in spring and has lemon-like flavor. The blooms are red and the foliage is dark green. The garden sorrel is used in salads and dressings. It tastes delicious in soups too.
Wood Sorrel – The botanical name of this herb is Oxalis acetosella, a sour herb that is mistaken for weed. It has small heart shaped leaves that grow in group of three resembling a clover. The blooms of this herb vary from white, pink to yellow depending upon the species. Not surprisingly there are numerous species under genus “Oxalis”.
