A linear pea-like pod which contains 3 or 4 heart-shaped yellow-brown seeds.
The leaves are trifoliate which means that they are divided into 3. The leaves are long-stalked and individual leaflets are circular with fine teeth along the margins. The leaves often have pale green or white v-shaped patterns on them. Occasionally you may find a 4-leaf clover which is considered good luck.
The leaves can be eaten raw in salads. Flowers are edible raw or cooked and can be dried to make tea.
Never consume a wild plant unless you are 100% certain that it is safe to eat and you know that you have identified it correctly.
