Crescione brasiliano

Botanical name: Acmella oleracea

Acmella oleracea è un’erbacea annuale* originaria dell’America meridionale, in particolare del Brasile e del Perù.

Cone-shaped flowers are yellow externally and internally in red. They make their appearance in the spring until late summer.

Il crescione brasiliano è una pianta commestibile. Le foglie possono essere consumate crude in insalate, zuppe, carni o cotte come contorno. Anche i fiori sono edibili. Incredibile è la sensazione di piccante pungente e di intorpidimento della lingua quando li si mangia.

In the popular cuisine it is used to treat sore teeth and gums.

* Although this variety is classified as an annual, the plant is able to self-reproduce by seed.
