Dittander (Lepidium latifolium)

Dittander – Lepidium latifolium

Dittander – Lepidium latifolium is a long forgotten native herb of damp, coastal soils. Once cultivated as a herbal treatment for leprosy and also used as a hot condiment before the introduction of Horseradish. All parts of the plant, including the root, are hot and spicy to eat and the young leaves taste of creamy, Horseradish sauce.
