What Exactly is Alfalfa Leaf?
The western United States didn’t see alfalfa seeds until the 1850’s when they were imported to California from Chile. Though here in the U.S. we say alfalfa when ordering its sprouted form for sandwiches and such, in Britain, France, Germany, Australia, and other countries, they’ve used the word lucerne. These days, with North and South America supplying the world with most of its alfalfa, the word alfalfa is being introduced into other languages.
