DescriptionWest Indian Lemongrass, Cymbopogon citratus, is quite different from East Indian Lemongrass, Cymbopogon flexuosus. West Indian Lemongrass has an earthy, pleasant aroma with strong citronellal notes, while not being as sweet as East Indian Lemongrass. Unlike the East Indian Lemongrass, West Indian Lemongrass contains myrcene and has slightly less citral. These factors significantly impact aroma.
