LEMONGRASS (Cymbpoogon citratus) is an aromatic tropical grass. Its tangy lemon scent and flavor are essential in Thai and Vietnamese cooking where it is used for soups, curries, fish and sauces. Best used fresh, it is the enlarged leaf base used for cooking. But the leaves also make a delightful tea and the whole plant has the happy aspect of repelling mosquitos!
