Types of Sorrel
- Broad-leaf, Common or Garden Sorrel: The most readily available type of sorrel, a deep-rooted perennial with a sharp flavor and large, arrow-shaped leaves.
- French or Buckler-Leaf Sorrel: Cultivated, with a more mild flavor and smaller, more rounded leaves.
- Sheep's Sorrel: Sour like common sorrel with smaller leaves, typically foraged instead of cultivated, grows wild in the United States.
- Red-Veined Sorrel: A variety with deep red veins running through the leaves, the least-tart type or sorrel.
