Crithmum maritimum – rock samphire


Crithmum maritimum, originally uploaded by Qurtubas.

My wife and I saw this plant while traveling in Italy, growing happily on vertical slopes close to the Mediterranean Sea. We loved its interesting texture and color. Upon returning home to Berkeley California, I found that Annie’s Annuals had this plant in stock at the moment! We’ve grown it in our garden ever since. I understand from friends on Mallorca that many people pickle the new shoot tips for later addition to salads (I’m still looking for a recipe!).
