MS553A - Giant Goosefoot Organic
Chenopodium giganteum. Our Giant Goosefoot organic seeds are CERTIFIED ORGANIC! A tall cousin of lamb's quarters, this fast growing plant has large, edible leaves that taste great and are high in fibre. Use the young, mineral-rich, magenta tipped leaves raw in salad mixes. Save some of the high-protein seeds for grinding into gluten free flour, or feed them to wild birds. Harvest thoroughly, though, as Giant Goosefoot can reach 2m (6') tall or more. Sow thickly and begin cutting as plants reach 15-20cm (6-8”) tall. Resow regularly for continuous harvests from April through autumn.
