Leopoldia comosa, more commonly known as the tufted grape hyacinth or tassel hyacinth, is a perennial bulbous plant and is found in South East Europe on rocky ground or cultivated areas, such as cornfields and vineyards. The edible bulb is eaten in some Mediterranean countries, and in Crete it is considered a delicacy. The bulbs are boiled several times, pickled and then kept in olive oil.
