Molopospermum peloponnesiacum

This mouthful of a plant is a beautiful woodlander in the carrot family (I’ve seen it in botanical gardens in the UK) and the young shoots were traditionally eaten peeled and raw in salads in the Spanish Pyrenees…  I posted this  picture of the strange triffid like spring shoots last year on FB to much amusement.

Now, it’s finally about to flower at 4 years old! I forgot to try it at the shoot stage, but now it’s not pleasant tasting…
