Its mild citrus flavour can be used in soups, poultry, beef, and seafood dishes in its fresh, powdered, or dried format.

Additionally, lemongrass is frequently used, either fresh or dried, to make tea.

Growing Information

Seed Sowing: Start indoor 8-10 weeks before the last frost. Spread very thinly on the soil. Rake the soil lightly so the seeds can be covered by a thin layer of dirt. Do not bury the seeds deep. Keep the soil moist.

Days to Germinate: 10-15 days

Days to Maturity: 75-85 days

Tips: Lemongrass can be stored in the fridge for two weeks and freezes well. Dried lemongrass can be stored in airtight jars and used as is or ground into a powder.
