Liquorice Update

These guys really grow fast. Here are some updated photos of our liquorice plants. There are ten of them in total as of now. One of them is already over an inch tall.


  1. Am I the only one who is confused as hell by the fact that liquorice grows from the ground??? Do zours also grow from the ground? how about sour sticks?

  2. I always thought it was the flavoring that came from a plant, not the actual stick of licorice. But I was never a big fan. Especially after my classmates in elementary school started telling me that it's mezonos.

  3. You are correct. I think it is the root that gives off the flavor. But I think these plants can produce pretty cool flowers either way.

    I heard about the bracha being mezonos also. I remember learning about this as well, but I don't remember what was agreed upon. I still make a shehakol.
