Caper is a spiny, trailing, deciduous shrub native to the Mediterranean. The Hebrew word for Caper is tapher which actually means desire. Capers are found in Jerusalem and around Nazareth and are offered as a sort of Hors d oeuvre to stimulate the appetite or to increase the desire to eat.
Caper bush likes hot summer temperatures and low humidity, apparently the leaves will sometimes develop odd pock marks on the surface if the humidity it too high. But itâ€™s also very frost hardy, growing happily down to Zone 7. In cold climates (less than minus 10ÂºC = 15ÂºF) you can grow them in a pot and bring them inside during the winter. Caterpillars are the main pest threat, especially during summer.
Special features: Fruits are ovoid or ellipsoid, apiculate, 3-3.5 x about 2 cm, smooth; seeds 8-10, 6.5-7 x about 6 mm; stalks thin. Travancore Caper is endemic to Southern Western Ghats
Culinary use: you could try caper butter on crusty bread, or capers as a stuffing for fish. Caper bush, Capparis spinosa, produces these unopened flower buds, which have been used in cooking for over 5000 years.
Ornamental use: The plant is used for ornamental purpose.
Medicinal use: Antioxidant, and it is used to cure renal calculi, helminthiasis, dysuria, inflammations, abscesses, to remove bladder stone and kidney stone.
