Uses

Toxic parts

All members of this genus contain furocoumarins, which increase skin sensitivity to sunlight and may cause dermatitis[1].

Edible uses

Notes

Leaves, young shoots and stems - used as an aromatic addition to salads[2], or cooked and used as a vegetable[3][4][5][6][7]. The taste is somewhat bitter[4]. The chopped leaves are a good addition to cooked acid fruits, especially rhubarb[7].

The stem and leafstalks are used in candies and sweetmeats[3][8][9][7]. Seed - used as an aromatic flavouring in confections and pastries[3][2].

Root - cooked[3].

Unknown part

Leaves

Material uses

The pulverized fruits are used to kill head parasites[8][10]. A good yellow dye is obtained from the plant (the report does not specify which part of the plant)[11].

Unknown part

Medicinal uses(Warning!)

The root and the seeds are antispasmodic, aromatic, carminative, diaphoretic, diuretic, emmenagogue, expectorant, stimulant, stomachic, and tonic[2][6][12][13][14]. This plant is less rich in active principles than A. archangelica and so is much less used medicinally than that species[15][16], but a decoction is sometimes used in the treatment of bronchial catarrh, coughs and dyspepsia[15]. Large doses have the effect of depressing the central nervous system[2].

Propagation

Seed - best sown in a cold frame as soon as it is ripe since the seed only has a short viability[17]. Seed can also be sown in the spring, though germination rates will be lower. It requires light for germination[17]. When large enough to handle, prick the seedlings out into individual pots and grow them on in a cold frame for their first winter, planting them out into their permanent positions in the spring. The seed can also be sow in situ as soon as it is ripe.
