Common mallow is also called cheeses, after the seed heads that resemble old fashioned cheese wheels.  I remember finding them when I was a kid.  But I don't remember them from Saudi Arabia.  Apparently they are native there.  If I had known, I would have gone looking.  Kind of like the dugongs.  If only I had known those guys were lurking around.  I sure would have loved to look for them!  Sailing around Tarut Bay looking for mermaids would have been a great adventure back in junior high days.
