Lovage "Magnus" Seeds, Organic

Levisticum officinale

Very uniform selection of lovage with green-yellow flowers. The leaves, stems, and seeds all taste like celery. Used extensively in preparing soups and salads.

  • Organic
  • Perennial plants in zones 3-8
  • Plants grow to 5-8 feet tall
  • Leaves and stems taste similar to celery

This variety works for:

  • Fresh eating
  • Soups
  • Baking
  • Dried seeds

As the leaves of Lovage mature their flavor intensifies, so we recommend that you only use young/new leaves chopped fresh in salads or atop meats and fish.

You can substitute Lovage for any recipe calling for celery and makes a great addition to soups and stews. Stalks of Lovage also make a great addition to any drink containing tomato juice so try to have some on hand for Sunday brunches!
