What are the pros? Nutritious
What are the cons? Prolific Seeder
This plant is a weed native to Egypt and the Middle East. It has a long tap root growing much like dock. I do not recommend going to seed. I started growing Molokhia because I am familiar with the Egyptian dish that was once a cuisine of the Pharoahs. I would crave it. Once I looked up the nutrition information, I understood why. If you want to eat healthy, you need this plant. Flavor and aroma will vary depending upon the climate. it will adapt quickly. In my area the new spring growth is very aromatic and can be used in scented soaps. Later, as the season heats up the aroma lessens and it acquires the delicious taste I am familiar. 3 harvests per plant in one year. Harvest down to 3" above ground. It springs back. Hide some leaves in stew for your family's nutrition and as a thickener. Graze on leaves while in the garden for health. Beautiful plant.
