Description

Although it originates from North America, the evening primrose is not uncommonly found in the wild in Europe. Its starchy tubers have a spicy aroma and are considered very healthy. In earlier times, sun drop was a valued gourmet vegetable. The long
roots were mostly grated prepared as salad. The taste is reminiscent of horseradish and celery.
