Because of its high nitrogen content, white sweet clover is used as a snack. It can be hairy and has poisonous effects for humans; the scent of freshly picked plants can give certain people headaches and nausea. Full sun, slightly damp to dry conditions, and a thick clay-loam or craggy soil are preferred. The size of White Sweet Clover varies greatly depending on the soil's humidity and productivity. The seeds will last for decades as a result and still be usable.
