(Trigonella foenum-graecum) Annual in the Legume Family, native to Asia. Upright viney habit, 18-24” tall, produces multitude of long, thin pods in which the seed forms. A kitchen spice used in Middle Eastern cuisine. Medicinally, used both as a galactagogue (stimulates milk production) and an enhancer of male libido.
Planting suggestions: Thrives in clay; average garden soil sufficient. Full sun. A cold-soil germinator so direct-seed in early Spring when you plant garden peas. Thin to 4-8” apart. Harvest seeds when entire plant is brown and dry. Pods cling shut around seeds, so threshing involves some effort.
