Acmella Oleracea, Toothache, Akarkara - Plant

Para cress is an upright or prostrate perennial plant.

The plant is often cultivated as an annual for its edible leaves in parts of the tropics, especially Brazil.

It is also grown widely as an ornamental because of the attractive colourful heads.


Prefers a sunny position.

Seed - requires a temperature of 21°c to germinate.

Germination takes place in about 2 weeks.

Cuttings when the plant is not in flower.

Plants have escaped from cultivation in New Caledonia, where the species is classified as 'Invasive'.

There is a wild form with much stronger flavoured leaves that is occasionally used in salads but is more commonly used medicinally, especially to treat toothache.

Adds a pungent flavour to salads that stimulates the salivary glands whilst having a numbing effect on the tongue and lips.

The most common and widespread medicinal use is to treat toothache and throat and gum infections.
