Alfalfa, Medicago sativa also called lucerne, is a perennial flowering plant in the pea family Fabaceae cultivated as an important forage crop in many countries around the world. The alfalfa plant is related to the pea family. Fully grown, it can climb up to 80 cm, blooming with violet flowers in summer. Also known as lucerne (when used in farming, for example as a vegetable manure) alfalfa’s name is rooted in the Arabic word that means ‘father of all foods’.

The noodle-like sprouts are salad and sandwich staples, while alfalfa leaves and flowers can be made into a herbal tea and drunk up to three times a day. Traditionally, the herb was used to kick-start the appetite and ease indigestion, while alfalfa seeds were made into a paste for treating insect bites and boils.
