We all love a Christmas tree but they don’t exactly look very tasty.
But for some reason, Waitrose has decided we should have trees we can eat.
Don’t worry – it won’t taste like pine needles, instead these are Rosemary plants, grown in a Christmas tree shape.
Of course, the herb is a great choice to add flavour to your Christmas dinner so you might as well make it even more festive.
It’s not the first time the supermarket has sold the trees – they were introduced last year and proved to be popular.
Standing at around 30cm in height, just under a third of the size of an average Christmas tree, these aromatic miniature trees are edible and smell great.
With needle like leaves, you can decorate it like a traditional Christmas tree.
Grown in Chichester, the trees have been specially selected for Waitrose.
Waitrose Horticulture Buyer Allison Burdett said: ‘We know our customers are keen gardeners and love cooking, so this is the perfect combination for them.
‘The rosemary tree’s leaves can be used to flavour dishes over the holidays and then be planted outside when Christmas is over, so nothing goes to waste.’
