    This medium to tall much branched plant has leaves which are somewhat mealy with ridged stems, and are arrow shaped or almost diamond-shaped. Flowers are in long spikes or lateral clusters, and the fruit enclosed within diamond shaped bracts. It was was eaten as a vegetable from Neolithic times until the 16th century when it was replaced by spinach and cabbage. Rich in vitamin C, it is still grown and eaten in North India. The nutritious seeds can be ground into flour, and it was historically grown as food for pigs, sheep and hens! It can also be grown as a very rapid growing green compost! Finally, the leaves are a source of ascaridole, an oil used to treat infestations of round worms and hook worms. The leaves can be used fresh in salads or cooked like spinach, and they have a cabbage-like taste of their own. The unopened flower buds are just like elongated broccoli and can be treated as such. The seeds are edible like quinoa, a closely related plant, but the seeds need the thin outer coating removing if possible, as it contains saponins which can be quite bitter. The flowers also are edible, and always make a salad look better. Medicinal Uses: It is very high in vitamin A, calcium, potassium, and phosphorus and is a good source of protein, trace minerals, B-complex vitamins, vitamin C, iron, and fibre. Finally, the leaves have been used as a poultice to soothe burns. ... Learn More

With a clump-forming nature it will spread slowly over time, with more mature plants increasing their display of flowers. Once the flowers are finished, the stems can be left for the attractive seed pods to form, or can be clipped back to encourage another blooming or to allow the foliage to give an attractive backdrop for other plants in your border. ...
