Petite® Lemon Balm is comprised of 2 to 4 small leaves attached to a slender stem, averaging 5 to 7 centimeters in length. The delicate green leaves are ovate with a pale purple underside, deeply serrated edges, and a textured surface covered in deep veining and wrinkles. The leaves are attached to a narrow pale green stem, contributing to the microgreen’s crisp, succulent, and tender consistency. Petite® Lemon Balm is highly aromatic with bright citrus notes and a strong lemon flavor that is slightly bitter with a mildly nutty finish.
PetiteGreens™ Lemon Balm is available year-round.
It is claimed to have antibacterial, antiviral properties and it is also used as a mild sedative or calming agent. Studies have found it to be effective at reducing stress. Lemon balm essential oil is very popular in aromatherapy.
Ideal when a lemony taste is desired. Perfect for seafood dishes. Garnish desserts, ices and cocktails. Use as a bed for fresh fruit salad. Dress up fruit plates and platters.
Native to southern Europe, lemon balm, the actual name of the plant, is an herb related to the mint family.
