Wood Garlic/Ramson


Medvehagyma (“MED-VE HOJ-MA”) – literally “bear onion” – has many names in English, including ramson, ramp, wood garlic and bear’s garlic. The green leaves of the plant are often found in stores specializing in organic foods, and are used in salads, soups, and sandwiches. Medvehagyma grows in the wild throughout Hungary, especially in oak and beech forests.

The arrival of medvehagyma in local markets was the subject of this April, 2008 article.
