Pineapple Sage LeafHerb Leaves
Pineapple Sage Leaves are fragrant and floral, with a slightly bitter and quite pineappley flavour. These leaves are at their best when they are very little and young, at which point they are quite soft and lovely – these are in high demand with pastry chefs who are looking for the tips and most delicate parts. As the leaves grow bigger, they become a bit more fibrous and intensely flavoured. At this point they are perfect for chopping up to make Pineapple Sage Icecream, which tastes absolutely amazing!

We always keep some of these plants growing until they flower because the Pineapple Sage Flower is really intense and gorgeous.
