Description

Angelica archangelica var. maiorum is a variant of garden angelica (or norwegian a.) that is a result of an old cultivation tradition in Voss. The wild form has hollow stems and a somewhat bitter taste, but vossakvann has more or less filled stems and a milder and fresher taste.

By selecting for these traits over several hundred years, and in small delimited angelica gardens, several separate lines of vossakvann emerged, also those with different properties. Cultivation has declined a lot in recent decades, there are probably only 3 lines left, and of some of these only a few individuals.

The farm Markusteigen is an old mountain farm north of Voss. The line was almost extinct, but there are collections that we have gained access to through the project Archangelica.no

We have established a field on Sørbråten farm in Maridalen with about 400 plants. Strict selection will be made of these in 2022, ie only plants with a fully filled stem will be preserved.
