Lemon Myrtle

Lemon Myrtle is a fragrant Australian shrub naturally occurring in the wetter coastal areas of northern New South Wales and southern Queensland. It grows up to 3 metres high in clusters of cream feathery flowers, creating a spectacular marshmallow display.

Used fresh, the Lemon Myrtle leaf is a versatile and refreshing herb with a flavour of creamy lemon and lime. It complements so many foods from fish and chicken to ice cream or sorbet.

Lemon Myrtle and mango combined make a great marinade for seafood with fresh chilli to taste.
