Milk thistle, Silybum marianum, is a tall edible plant and a member of the Aster family. The fruit is a strongly compressed, elongate-obovate achene, about 6 to 8 mm long, 3 mm broad and 1.5 mm thick. The outer surface is smooth and shiny with a grey or pale brown ground color variably streaked longitudinally with dark brown, which gives it an overall pale greyish or brown color. The fruit is tapering at the base and crowned at the apex with a glistening, pale yellow extension that forms a collar about 1 mm high surrounding the remains of the style. Cut transversely, the fruit shows a narrow, brown outer area and two large, dense, oily, white cotyledons.
