Fresh Interest in a Forgotten Plant

Flax (Linum usitatissimum) is one of the world’s oldest cultivated plants. In times past, flax was grown for its oil-bearing seed and for its fiber. Linen cloth woven from flax has been found in ancient Egyptian tombs, while Jewish high priests of the Old Testament wore garments made from flax.
