Lemongrass is an herb that grows tall and hearty. It is a grass with a bulb at the base that holds the lemon flavor, so be sure to remove your plug before harvesting in order to reach your grass bulbs.
This plant should be harvested before it gets too woody, otherwise it loses its flavor.
Classic Lemongrass Story
Cymbopogon citratus is our premier lemongrass variety. This plant is native to Sri Lanka and South India where they have been cultivating it for centuries. This centuries old plant has become a staple in asian cuisine, in particular curries, because it sweet tropical aroma. It has a complex citrus flavor that can be perfect in teas, cocktails, soups, and fish. Its grass-leaf structure also lends to the aesthetic of your garden with firm vertical lines and looks best next to low lying herbs.
