Grown for its young leaves which have a delicious, cucumber-like taste. They can be eaten raw and cooked and used as a culinary herb for seasoning soups, salads, vinegars, sauces, and drinks. Herbalists use the plant topically for skin burns and wounds. The flowers, and flower stalks are curious and have a certain charm, though they tend not to be the main attraction. Native to the Mediterranean, but naturalized in much of the US.
