Discover: Pineapple Weed

Pineapple weed, also known as Wild Chamomile, is an annual plant found in sunny locations along the edges of fields, trails and footpaths between May and September. Often growing low to the ground amongst areas of loose soil - it’s an easy plant to forage and a total treasure to taste!

Known for its sweet aroma and pineapple taste, it can offer all sorts of interesting dimensions to drinks. It’s the flowerhead you’re after when foraging for pineapple weed. It has a very small flowerhead, dome-shaped and yellow-green in colour. Look for flowers that are more yellow than green as these are more fresh and full of flavour. When crushed, they smell like sweet pineapple.

Pineapple weed joins the many other plant species which are often used for herbal remedies. Anti-inflammatory, antispasmodic and a brilliant aid to relax and relieve stress and tension.

A syrup is a fine way to extract this plant’s beautiful flavour, which you can use in drinks or in cooking. You can also eat Pineapple weed raw, so it can be a wonderful garnish for both taste and visual appeal. Not least in a Pentire & Tonic!
