Bloody Sorrel

(2 customer reviews)


Rumex sanguineus 

Fresh green leaves with red stripes and a vibrant taste. Falling in love with bloody sorrel is easy! 

Bloody sorrel is one of the prettiest and most spectacular salads you can imagine. The taste is fresh and lemony. Like rhubarb and wood sorrel, red veined sorrel contains oxalic acidgiving it a similar taste. 

Not only does red veined sorrel add flavour, when served fresh it’s also a feast for the eyes. Young leaves can be eaten as they arewhereas larger ones can be chopped and cooked in butter and cream.

Bloody sorrel, also known as red veined sorrel germinates in 7-10 days and grows slowly at first. It takes about a month for growth to accelerate and the first harvest is ready about 5 weeks after sowing. 

Harvest by cutting the largest leaves very close to the base. New growth takes place in the mid section of the plant. Red veined sorrel can stain your fingers, so try using scissors.
