Sage, Extrakta (Organic)

Salvia officinalis. Perennial in zones 5-9.

This improved strain of common/garden sage has a high essential oil content making it excellent for culinary and medicinal use. Fast and easy to grow from seed. We especially love to fry up fresh leaves until they’re crispy and serve them with pork chops. We also use Extrakta Sage leaves to flavor beans, pasta sauce, and turkey stuffing. Both silver-green foliage and dark purple flowers are edible, and leaves retain their flavor when dried. Can be used in aromatherapy and herbal smoking blends. Highly aromatic, deer resistant, and drought tolerant. Flowers also attract pollinators. Native to the Mediterranean region with documented medicinal uses going back to ancient Greece.

    Where did you grow this variety? Washington

    I’ve had great luck with this seed. I am a newbie gardener and I grew sage plants from seed indoors with grow lights in 2022 and planted out in the garden in late spring 2022. That sage I had planted in 2022 came back so well this year 2023 and is blooming now in spring. I grew a bunch more this year 2023 indoors from that 2022 seed, so now I have even more to plant out into my garden. I like it with oregano in my omelettes. Also it’s a very valuable companion plant in the vegetable garden. Thanks so much. I’d buy more except now I think I’ll never have to plant more sage for as long as we live here. 🙂 Thanks! – JW in Olympia, WA
