Are Citrus Leaves Edible?
Once in a while I bruise some young leaves of my Ponderosa lemons and I understand why some of the worms and other pests like citrus leaves. They smell really good! There are really only two pests I have in my area that eat the leaves, leaf miners, and swallowtail butterfly larvae. My trees are big enough now so I could harvest a few leaves now and then or use leaves off pruned branches. Are there ways we humans can also enjoy the leaves or should we remain focused on protecting the leaves from being eaten as most sane folks here are doing?
