Buckwheat, Takane Ruby

$4.00

A superfood from the Chinese Himalayas, seed was collected by a Japanese professor in the 1980s who then developed this stunning cover crop that now blankets hills in central Japan. May self-seed.

90 days. Not a wheat at all, this annual buckwheat is as beautiful as it is tasty. Grown for its brilliant pinkish red flower clusters and gluten-free seeds, which can be sprouted for microgreens, eaten as a cereal, or ground into flour for pancakes and soba noodles. Flowers attract bees that make dark buckwheat honey from the nectar.
