I came across this very interesting looking plant while browsing the Internet. Apparently, it is edible (seeds, plants, and maybe the pod), but I just can't find the name of it. It grows in the desert, but I'm not sure exactly where.

Here are some pictures of the plant:

Based on a Google image search it seems to be glossonema edule, and is found in and around Qatar.

  • Thanks! I tried using Google image search to no avail. What search parameters did you use to find it? – Pamela Jan 26 '16 at 6:26

    I just clicked on a couple of the pics, chose google image search, then started clicking the links that looked the most promising. – Debbie M. Jan 26 '16 at 7:09
