(Egyptian spinach; Jew’s mallow) Vegetable green popular throughout the Middle East, Africa and Asia. Its use dates to ancient Egypt where it was called "food of the kings." The plant has anticancer and anti-inflammatory properties, and is highly nutritious, even more so than kale. Leaves are minced and cooked with coriander and garlic and served as a puree on rice with chicken, rabbit, lamb or fish. It has a slightly mucilaginous texture that may take some getting used to but millions will tell you it is well worth it. Keep plants pinched back for a continuous harvest of young shoots and leaves. 60 days.
