More details about Fenugreek Organic

CERTIFIED ORGANIC! Trigonella foenum-graecum. This pungent herb, also known as methi, is widely used in Mediterranean, Middle-Eastern, and South Asian cuisines. Its fresh or dried leaves can be used as a herb, and its seeds can be used as a spice. Fenugreek also makes very tasty, strongly flavoured sprouts or micro-greens. It is in the legume family, and closely related to fava beans, so it will fix nitrogen in the soil if allowed to grow to maturity. The pale yellow and white flowers are followed by pods that will take on a straw colour when the seeds are mature. The plants can reach 60cm (24") tall.

Annual.

How to Grow Fenugreek

Step 1: Timing

Fenugreek responds poorly to root disturbance so either direct sow once the soil begins to warm up in late spring, or start indoors in peat pots or other compostable pots that can be transplanted whole. Ideal temperature for germination: 18°C (65°F). Seeds should sprout in 7-10 days.

Step 2: Starting

Sow 5mm (¼”) deep. Transplant at a spacing of 10cm (4″). Keep the soil evenly moist during germination. Once seeds sprout, reduce watering slightly.

Step 3: Growing

Fresh leaves are ready to harvest in 30 to 40 days, once the plants are 25cm (10") tall. Try using fenugreek as a cut-and-come-again crop by cutting back to 10cm (4") above the soil. If growing for seed, allow the plants to mature fully through the flowering and pod stage. The pods will turn yellow and the lower leaves will begin to drop once the seeds are mature.

Step 4: Harvest

Tie harvested plants in bundles for five to seven days to allow the pods to dry on the plants. Harvest the dry seeds by hand 

Tips!

Companion Planting: As a legume, mature fenugreek plants will begin fixing atmospheric nitrogen in the soil around the time flowering begins. This makes it a useful companion for nitrogen loving vegetables like corn, cucumbers, and Brassicas. For the same reason, avoid planting beside Alliums.
