Polygonaceae. China. H 1.5m x L0.3m. Z10 to Z12. Annual. Fast growing frost tender plant, cultivated for its food seed (pseudo-cereal consumed cooked like rice, as sprouted seed, as flour used in the traditional production of buckwheat pancakes in Brittany and Limousin France or to thicken a liquid preparation, in fermented drinks, etc.), for its abundant melliferous flowering from July to first frost (strong flavour buckwheat honey), for its anti-weeds properties in the management of crop rotations (root allelopathy, aerial suffocation - Fagopyrum esculentum is a knotweed), as a green manure, and for its repellent properties on certain harmful insects such as wireworms. The variety "La Harpe" is used for the production of flour. It has great vigor and exceptional ground cover ability. Its seed, rich in proteins and essential amino acids, has many nutritional properties. It is gluten-free, an advantage for gluten-free diets, however a drawback in cooking since its flour cannot be used alone or for bread-making. Buckwheat likes acidic and poor soils, in sunny exposure. It likes cool and humid climates but supports heat and dryness. However, excessive heat during flowering causes abortion. Avoid any prior fertilization of the soil. Sow after the last risk of frost in May directly in place - 30 to 40 kg / ha. Harvest in 3 months. 1 packet of 500 grams, harvest of the year.
