Edible Plant Species

 
     
 
Tigridia pavonia Ker-Gawl. Irideae. TIGER FLOWER.
Mexico.
Its farinaceous root was eaten by the ancient Mexicans.


Tilia. Tiliaceae. BASSWOOD. LIME. LINDEN. WHITEWOOD.
Several species of Tilia are extensively grown as shade trees in Europe, where they are indigenous, and all may often be found introduced in the northeastern states of America. The flowers and leaves are sometimes used as a tea substitute and sugar has been made from the sap. During the last century, Missa, a French chemist, found that the fruit of the lime, ground up with some of the flowers in a mortar, furnished a substance much resembling chocolate in flavor. Some attempts were made in Prussia to introduce the manufacture of this lime-chocolate but were abandoned on account of the great liability of the paste to decompose. Lime-chocolate contains much nutritious matter and has an agreeable flavor.


Tinguarra sicula Benth. & Hook. f. Umbelliferae.
Countries about the Mediterranean Sea.
The root is edible and celerylike.
