Description: Bay leaves add their essence and aroma to our soups and stews.The sweet bay leaf tree (Laurus nobilis) is a 40- to 50-foot tall tree native to the Mediterranean region. The leaves are leathery and stiff with a strong mid-rib. Crushing the leaf releases aromatic oil that is the source of the flavoring for foods. They are used in soups, stews, meat, seafood, vegetable dishes, and sauces. They are most often used in rice dishes like biryani and as an ingredient in garam masala. Bay (laurel) leaves are frequently packaged as tejpatta (the Hindi term for Indian bay leaf), creating confusion between the two herbs.You can grow a bay tree simply as an ornamental plant or as part of your culinary arsenal.
Care: Bay tree care is very simple and straightforward but protection must be given to these trees in cold climates.Place a potted plant in an area where temperatures range from 45 to 64 F. (7 to 17 C.) and where sunlight is from a southern or eastern direction.
