Commonly referred to as 'pineapple weed,' wild chamomile was brought to Europe from Oregon in the late 19th century. It is a hardy plant, growing rapidly and in a variety of conditions. Most view it as nothing more than a pesky weed, however, wild chamomile has numerous uses. The soft heads, when crushed, give off a scent similar to that of apples or pineapples, hence earning its nickname. They have traditionally been added to salads and greens, as well as uses in herbal preparations, teas, and infusions.
