Lemon Myrtle

lemon myrtle tree

Lemon Myrtle (Backhousia citriodora) is a beautiful Australian shrub naturally occurring in the wetter coastal areas of northern New South Wales and southern Queensland. It grows up to 3 metres high, with graceful hanging branches of soft green leaves. The clusters of cream feathery flowers occur in Autumn, creating a spectacular fragrant display.

Used fresh, the Lemon Myrtle leaf is a most versatile and refreshing herb. For storage, the leaves are cool dried (to prevent loss of essential oils) and then ground and stored in a cool, dry manner for later use.
