Description

Blue fenugreek is an old, traditional spice often used with cheeses and dips, which undeservedly has not been in people's awareness until recently. Already popular in Switzerland, blue fenugreek is appreciated there for its own unique flavour,
slightly resembling curry spices.
Trigonella caerulea is an annual plant which is easy and fast to grow, ready for harvest already after 2-3 months. The whole plant may be cut and kept in a dry and dark space for drying.

Seeds: 400 blue fenugreek seeds per package

Growing instructions
The seeds can be sown directly into the ground outdoors from mid-April, about 1-1,5cm deep and in rows about 40cm apart. Blue fenugreek rather prefers sunny and dry locations.
