£1.75£3.00

Chenepodium bonus-henricus. A perennial which has tall spire-like flowers of greenish yellow, and triangular leaves rather like spinach, which it resembles in taste. The young leaves can be used in exactly the same way as perpetual spinach whilst the juvenile flower buds can be sautéed in butter. The young shoots can be forced in the spring to produce an alternative to Asparagus.
