Capers belongs to the Capparidaceae family. It is a perennial shrub with small
thorns, branching shoots, which are spread in the ground. The flowers are large
and white and grow individually. In Greece it grows spontaneously in many places (mainly on the islands) in stony and rocky locations.
Fruiting lasts from May to August. Capers are used both as an aromatic in
cooking and as a medicinal herb for their properties. More specifically, they are
helpful against the weakness, which anemia can cause and in arthritis.
