The Jerusalem oak is occasionally cultivated for its edible leaves, there is at least one named variety, developed in the Netherlands. 'Green Magic' is a cultivar with a delicious nutty flavour. It can be harvested just 31 days after sowing.

The dried flower spikes are aromatic and ornamental. The leaves emit an agreeable aromatic smell when they are handled.
