Lemon Myrtle Leaf Whole

Australian Native Herb



An ideal substitute for fresh lemon grass when used sparingly in Asian dishes.

Other Common Names

Lemon Ironwood, Sweet Verbena Tree, Sand Verbena Myrtle, Tree Verbena. Botanical Name: (Backhousia citriodora)

Description & Use

One of the most useful of the Australian native herbs and spices, Lemon Myrtle has a delicious lemongrass-like flavour and aroma of lemon verbena. Use the whole leaves in dishes such as Asian curries and soups as a substitute for lemongrass. Whole leaves may be added early to a recipe and cooked for enough time for the flavour to infuse, like a bay leaf. Lemon Myrtle should be used sparingly, about 4 leaves to 500g of meat, carbohydrates or vegetables.

Product of Australia.
