malluach . From melach , ("salt".) Therefore rather "saltwort," orache , Αtriplex halimus , used as a salad; found in "waste and desolate wildernesses" (Job 30:4). The lowest, complains the patriarch, deride me; as the rude Bedouins of the desert, "who cut up saltwort among the bushes (or 'hedges'), and the broom roots (retem ) for their meat." It is white, without thorns, growing near the sea, its leaves broader and smoother than the olive; it is used for hedges (Dioscorides). Four or five feet high, with thick branches, small purple flowers, sour tasting leaves; of the natural order Chenopodiaceae .
