Harmala vulgaris (Peganum harmala)
Syn.: rue, isirik, burial ground, belobok, grave grass, pegan, strelina, userlik, splotnik, yuzyurlyun.
A perennial herbaceous plant with a specific smell, exuberant flowering and a lot of useful substances. Harmala vulgaris is successfully used for medical purposes, observing the exact dosages, since the plant is poisonous.
A perennial herbaceous plant with a specific smell and multiple, lignified stems with age, usually reaches 50-65 cm in height. The powerful, two-to three-headed taproot penetrates deeply into the soil, thus providing the plant with moisture and nutrients. The branches are sinuous, glabrous, and green in color. The leaves are arranged alternately, sessile, long-shaped-dissected into several segments. Some large shrubs of harmala contain up to 140 stems with a crown diameter of 110-150 cm. Intensive growth of the aboveground part is observed in late March and early April. Then the budding period begins. The flowers are numerous, pale yellow or white in color, placed 2-3 on the tops of young branches and mature stems. The calyx is divided into five linear sepals, the corolla consists of 5 petals, the stamens are about 10-15. In July-August, the fruits are formed-dry, three-nest, flattened, spherical boxes up to 1 cm across. One box contains up to 100 dark brown small, lumpy-angular seeds of a triangular, wedge-shaped shape. One plant can produce up to 120 thousand seeds. Sometimes the vegetation of the plant continues until the autumn frosts.
Isolated specimens, but much more often extensive thickets of harmala are found in the southern regions of the European part of Russia, in the Caucasus, in Western Siberia, in Ukraine, in Central Asia, and Mongolia. It grows on clay, saline soils, sand, semi-deserts and steppes, occupying desert pastures, rocky areas. Often harmala is found as a weed in crops of cereals, alfalfa, on melons, vineyards, along roads, on the sandy shores of lakes and rivers.
The plant is poisonous, but the raw material of harmala is harvested for medical purposes. Harvesting of grass (branches, leaves and flowers, but not old lignified stems) begins during budding and flowering, the roots are prepared in March or late autumn, the seeds - during their full maturation, that is, in autumn. The raw material is dried by air, placing the harmala under a canopy in a well-ventilated room, spreading a 10-centimeter layer on paper or fabric. The dried material is cut into pieces about 8 cm long. They are packed in paper packages, and the raw materials of harmala are stored for no more than 2 years. Repeated collection of raw materials in the same places is possible only after 2 years. During this period, the plant resumes its growth and recovers after cutting.
Harmala seeds are suitable for harvesting when the boxes begin to open. The fruits are cut with a knife or mow the grass with scythes, then binding it into sheaves. Dry grass is threshed, the seeds are separated. All stages of harvesting are done quickly, care is taken when cutting, drying and post-harvest processing of grass, as there may be manifestations of nausea and headache.
