Lemongrass (Cymbopogon citratus)
It’s true that all grasses are edible, but they certainly don’t all taste like it. Enter lemongrass, a tropical monocot known for its citronella symphonies, a much more delectable delight than most groundcovers and totally appropriate in everything from curries to sun teas to truffles. The sweet nectar of lemongrass attracts bees in droves, so we dance the delicate dance of taking turns with the bumbles for a chance at this sour-hued, sweet-laced treat.
