Syrian Rue Var. Chocolate Incense  (Peganum Harmala)


Viable Untreated live Seed
Peganum harmala, commonly called wild rue, Syrian rue, African rue,esfand, or harmel,(among other similar pronunciations and spellings), is a perennial, herbaceous plant, with a woody underground root-stock, of the family Nitrariaceae, usually growing in saline soils in temperate desert and Mediterranean regions. Its common English-language name came about because of a resemblance to rue (which is not related). Because eating it can cause livestock to sicken or die, it is considered a noxious weed in a number of countries. It has become an invasive species in some regions of the western United States. The plant is popular in Middle Eastern and north African folk medicine. 
It is also used as an anthelmintic (to expel parasitic worms). Reportedly, the ancient Greeks used the powdered seeds to get rid of tapeworms and to treat recurring fevers (possibly malaria)
Pliny relates how those covered in the sap, or having eaten it sober, would be immune to poison.
