Spice Island Rosemary Plant
Spice Island Rosemary is the top choice for culinary purposes. Excellent for fresh use as leaves or stem skewers, as well as, being the number variety for dried Rosemary leaves. The plant has an erect upright stature and long internodes (space) between the leaves. This feature makes plucking the leaves quick & easy for cooking or drying. But don’t waste the stem because they are perfect for making veggie or meat skewers for the BBQ. The taste qualities are clean, citrusy, and not as overpowering as regular Rosemary. The aromatic properties are the best feature of Spice Island. You can smell this one from far away if a breeze is blowing. Hands down the most pleasantly aromatic Rosemary we have ever offered.
