Focus on the Botany of Lemon Myrtle

Botanical Origin of Lemon Myrtle

Lemon myrtle, whose botanical name is backousia citriodora, is part of the Myrtaceae family. Native to the humid forests of Australia, this tree offers its leaves, used in cooking for their fresh and deliciously lemony scent. They are thin, oval, and a shiny green. Lemon myrtle is an evergreen tree that typically grows in tropical and subtropical regions. In its natural habitat, this tree can reach up to 20 meters in height. It requires a mild climate to develop.

The Origins of Lemon Myrtle

In the past, lemon myrtle was traditionally used by the indigenous peoples of Australia for its aromatic and medicinal properties. Even today, in addition to its culinary use, lemon myrtle is used to produce essential oil with multiple virtues. However, over time, lemon myrtle lost its popularity. It was a British chef named Jamie Oliver who used it in one of his recipes during a television show. This allowed it to regain its fame around the world.
