Looking for a unique and delicious addition to your culinary creations? Look no further than the common caper, also known as Capparis spinosa. Native to the rocky coastal areas of the Mediterranean region, this perennial plant is best known for its edible flower buds and fruit, which are consumed pickled and used as a seasoning in a variety of dishes. But that's not all - extracts of the root have been used as a cosmetic to treat rose-colored rashes and capillary weaknesses. Plus, the plant's numerous health benefits come from its high polyphenol content. Cultivating capers requires a semiarid or arid climate, making it a valuable crop for harsh environments. Try incorporating capers into your next salad, sauce, or marinade for a unique and flavorful touch.
