      Hi all,

      If you are interested in finding Muscari comosum, look for
      Lampascione plural Lampascioni it is a common food especially in
      Southern Italy and Puglia (Salento),they were collected from the wild,
      now they are grown in fields and even imported, I found them in a
      grocery in Tuscany where I live, imported from Morocco !

      It is very
      easy to grow a little more difficult to prepare with traditional
      recipes, anyway they are good also in a salad (the only way I tried my
      few ones !)

      You can find in the web seeds :

      Hi Geir.

      I'm Steve. While I don't grow and eat hyacinth
      myself, perhaps this site will help.

      http://www.paghat.
      com/muscaricomosum.html
      "The wild tassel hyacinth is additionally
      known as "Edible Muscari" or served in Mediterranean restaurants as
      "Cippolini," reportedly tasty & bittersweet when fully cooked. When
      grown to eat, they are harvested when three thin leaves appear, & not
      permitted to bloom. For the Greek & Italian market they are cooked &
      canned by small commercial specialists, packed in oil & vinegar, to be
      used as a relish.
      The cultivar 'Plumosum' reproduces too slowly to be
      sensibly grown for food, & a great shame to dig them up before they
      flower in any case; but after a few years the wild Tassel Hyacinth
      should be so well established in the garden that there'd be enough
      extras to harvest some pre-flowering spring bulbs for the kitchen.
      It
      has also been used medicinally as a diuretic, or pounded into a paste
      rich in mucilage smeared on skin abrasions."

      Peace,

      Steve
