Micro Buckwheat

Fagopyrum esculentum

Delicate and pale green with a tangy flavor

Even though Buckwheat seems like it would be a member of the wheat family, it is actually a member of the Sorrel, Knotweed, and Rhubarb families. Because of the high amount of carbohydrates found within buckwheat, it is often referred to as a pseudo-cereal. Buckwheat makes an excellent alternative to gluten if you suffer from a gluten allergy and or are on a gluten free diet. There are numerous recipes involving buckwheat, such as buckwheat pancakes, roasted buckwheat, and buckwheat chocolate chip cookies..
