Review:

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.

Review:

I planted this in mid June, now early August and the stems are 7 ft tall. Pretty leafy green, very tidy, grows straight up, no falling over. planted directly in good garden soil. When cooked the leaves are surprisingly delicious ....I've thrown into pasta as its cooking, vegetable soup, stews ... to me it was only a slight mucilaginous texture - very tasty. Hope the seeds will be easy to save! Will definitely plant again.
