   Introduction

Common buckwheat is recommended both as a small grain crop for home gardens and as a green manure/cover crop. This has naturalized in some areas, including much of Europe and parts of northern North America, and can be persistent after it has escaped from cultivation. This occurs in waste places and cultivated ground. The crop plant, common buckwheat, is Fagopyrum esculentum. Tartary buckwheat (F. tataricum Gaertn.) or "bitter buckwheat" is also used as a crop, but it is much less common. Despite the common name and the grain-like use of the crop, buckwheat is not a cereal or grass. The grain is called a pseudo cereal to emphasize that the plant is not related to wheat.


   Description

Many people think that buckwheat is a cereal grain, it is actually a fruit seed that is related to rhubarb and sorrel. (We classify it as a grain on our website because it categorized as such from a culinary perspective.) Common and Tartary buckwheat are the varieties that are popular in the United States. Buckwheat flowers are very fragrant and are attractive to bees that use them to produce a special, strongly flavored, dark honey. Its color ranges from tannish-pink to brown. Buckwheat is often served as a rice alternative or porridge. Buckwheat is also ground into flour, available in either light or dark forms, with the darker variety being more nutritious. In the United States, buckwheat flour is often used to make buckwheat pancakes, a real delight, especially for those allergic to wheat.
