Sorrel is a dark green, leafy herb that pops up every spring. The tart, lemony green is a favorite of foragers and amateur gardeners because it’s hearty and grows almost like a weed (so it doesn’t require much cultivation). Here, a short but comprehensive guide to bright and vibrant sorrel.
Where: Sorrel is not native to the US—it was brought over from Europe—but it grows well in almost every state.
When: April through June.
