“...Aroma very pungent. 'Grosso' was discovered about 1972 in the Vaucluse district by M. Pierre Grosso (1905-1989) a local farmer from Goult, a little village near Apt, who had been growing lavandin since 1931. He found some sturdy lavandin plants in the middle of deserted fields, made some cuttings and then planted them out on his own land."
