Urtica Dioica

As its namesake suggests, stinging nettle can be a nuisance to the unknowing gardener as a simple brush on bare skin can result in an uncomfortable stinging sensation. But the plant has a good defense system for a reason. Stinging Nettle is one of the most nutrient dense plants you could ever find in the wild. It’s rich in protein, iron, vitamin A, C, D, and many more essential minerals. 

Try these fresh nettles as tea, fried, or in soups and stews. Hand picked to order. Available in 1lb increments. Wholesale inquiries welcome!
