Confusion bay and laurel and dangers
« on: November 27, 2011, 02:46 PM »
HI All
I have just read the post on bay leaves and was shocked at the confusion :o
The "bay leaf "from LAURUS NOBILIS is the edible one known as bay leaf The tree grows in many parts of the world but here in the UK it does not receive the heat and light as tropical climates hence not as aromatic It has many local names
Only trust the Latin names for your own safety As PRUNUS LAUROCERANS is the hedging plant bigger leaves and dark green and shiny
Do not eat as they are very poisonous
