Notes

Root - raw or cooked[1][2][3][4][5][6]. A very nice sweet flavour[7], reminiscent of walnuts[1]. They are best mixed with other root vegetables and used in winter salads[1][8].

Leaves - raw or cooked as a potherb[1][2][8][7][3][4][5][6]. A fairly bland flavour, with a hint of sweetness, they are quite acceptable raw in salads[K]. The leaves are rich in vitamin C, they make an acceptable winter salad[9].

Young shoots in spring can be blanched and cooked like asparagus[6].

Cultivation

An easily cultivated plant, it prefers a moist but well-drained rich sandy loam and a neutral or alkaline soil in sun or partial shade[11][9][12], though it succeeds in most good soils[9]. Tolerates a pH in the range 4.8 to 7.5.

Plants are hardy to at least -15°c[12]. Plants often self-sow in the garden[13]. The species in this genus do not often hybridize and so seed can generally be relied upon to come true[14]. The plants are self-fertile[14]. Rampion was formerly often cultivated for its edible root, though it has fallen into virtual disuse[9]. When grown for its edible root, the plant should not be allowed to flower[9]. Plants can be grown in a meadow[12].

Members of this genus are rarely if ever troubled by browsing deer[15].
