Lovage is a perennial plant, distinct of the genus Levisticum in the Apiaceae family, subfamily Apioideae. In certain parts of Europe where Lovage was naturalized, it has been used as a folk remedy for mild digestive systems, headaches, and kidney disorders.
It is highly regarded for its fragrant and strongly flavored, celery-like, but salty, sweet, slightly bitter taste.
Color and texture: Shiny green, yellowish stems and leaves with a leafy appearance similar to parsley.
Seeds: Our organic seeds are grown in Longiano, Italy.
Nutritional information: Rich in vitamins K, C and A, and an essential source of minerals such as calcium, potassium, and magnesium. It has been shown that the antioxidants in lovage are highly bioactive and actively wipe out free radicals, thus preserving cells against damage.
