on this item


Essential for authentic Thai cooking. No need to go in search of an exotic market for fresh lemongrass when it’s so easy to grow your own! Requires heat, humidity and moist, rich, well-drained soil. Harvest the long, slender blade-like leaves down to the fleshy stem and use as you would a fresh herb. Some claim lemongrass has antibacterial, antifungal and fever-reducing effects. Use fresh leaves as a seasoning, in tea or even to repel mosquitoes! Tender perennial. Photo courtesy of Baker Creek Heirloom Seed.
