TUBEROSUM In East Asia (A. tuberosum; local name: Nira) and Central Asia (A. ramosum; local name: Djusai) are widely cultivated for the leaves and the flowering umbels, which combine garlic and sweet flavours and are used for soups, salads and other traditional Chinese and Japanese dishes. The plants were taken by immigrants to many other countries. In recent times this species has started to become more popular in Central and West Europe where the leaves are said to have therapeutic effects on tumours (van der Meer, 1997).
