The lemon myrtle tree is normally developed to around 26 ft. (8 m) tall yet can incidentally achieve a stature of more than 60 feet (20 meters). The fragrant leaves, which are 2 to 5 inches (5 to 12 centimeters) in length, are dim green, reflexive, and lanceolate, or spear formed, appearing to be like straight leaves. The little, cream-shaded blossoms of the lemon myrtle develop in bunches at branch tips all through the late spring season. Both the blossoms and organic products might be eaten just as the leaves.
The smell of lemon myrtle is like a mix of lemon verbena, lemongrass and kaffir lime with a slight eucalyptus foundation. The flavor is unmistakably lemony and tart, with particular lime get-up-and-go notes and a wonderfully waiting, somewhat desensitizing camphor trailing sensation. Powdered lemon myrtle leaf is coarse, light green and when crisp discharges these fragrance and taste qualities.
