(Pineapples; Manzanilla del cerro;
Scented of pineapples, apples, and strawberry all in one!
Fascinating native herb of Chile. When brushed against or squeezed it releases a startling pineapple scent with hints of apple, mango and strawberry. Traditionally used as a tea for fevers and indigestion, it is now a rising star in the fragrance industry in products such as soaps and it is used in food products such as processed cheeses, candies, vinegars, soft drinks, infused wines and vermouth. In the kitchen it can be added to marinades, sauces, pastries, jellies, pickles, and to fish and vegetable dishes. But use it sparingly: its flavour and aroma can easily overwhelm the taste of any dish if too much is added. A pinch goes a long way. Combined with echinacea, mint, lemon balm and calendula it also makes an excellent antibacterial and immune-boosting first-aid medicine for the family. Easy to grow in any sunny garden. Produces a sea of tiny yellow pompom flowers from June to September. Ht. 40-60cm (16-24in).
