What is a Ramp? "Ramps" (Allium tricoccum), are a native edible plant which grows wild throughout the Appalachian Mountains. Known by West Virginians as "Ramps," they are closely related to the garlic family and often referred to as Wild Leeks.

This popular pungent wild vegetable will soon begin to make its springtime appearance in the rich soils of shady woods. Being the first edible wild greens that appeared following winter, early settlers welcomed ramps as a "spring tonic" following months of dried or salted foods. This culinary heritage has been passed from generation to generation.
