Spring I bought a no name Rosemary plant at the grocery store then planted it in the garden. It grew into a nice big plant but it has no flavor. It tastes about the same as green tree leaves. I tasted several other tree leaves they all taste about the same not the same flavor of grass. It seems like Rosemary sold in the grocery store should have flavor intended to eat on food???
Every time we go to Kroger or Walmart I taste a leaf from a Rosemary plant so far none have any flavor at all.
Few days ago I found a Rosemary plant at Lowe's trimmed to the shape of a small 1 ft tall Christmas tree. Leaves on this Rosemary plant have a very good Rosemary flavor.
When I lived in AZ I bought a Rosemary plant at Sprouts it had a very good Rosemary flavor.
