  • Description

    (Moloukiyah) Molokhia, once known as Jew’s Mallow or Jute Mallow, is a widely cultivated, delicious green grown throughout the Middle East and Africa. Most forms grown are relatively modest in size, getting to about 3 feet in height. Not this variety! The Giant of Bertroua comes from Bertroua, Cameroon. It is a well-known cultivar with long, large leaves, and the plants can easily reach 10 feet in height. The big, tender leaves can be eaten fresh, in a myriad of cooked dishes; dried leaves are also readily transformed into soups and side dishes. A delicious, extremely nutritious green that has a reputation for helping digestion because of its viscous character.
