Laurel is a shrub or small tree. Its leaves are mostly arranged alternately, undivided, spear shaped, deep green with small stalk and slight undulant shape. They are aromatic and taste a little bitter. The plant blossoms in March and April. The fruit is drupe with fleshy pericarp and big sperm cell. Its colour is cyan-black or black when matured; it has oral shape and size of a small olive. Laurel oil is produced from the fruits, used in a form of cream and has green colour in usual temperature.
Our unique laurel is the keeper of our farms, since the plants rise up surrounding the area and protect the other plants from extreme weather conditions. With attentive selection, each year we choose the best foliage parts, so as to gather the precious leaves, which after natural dehydration will be packaged and ready for use to make our foods more tasteful.
Laurel leaves are available in plastic reusable doypacks.
