Beech wheat (Eng.), Bokwiet (Afr.)
Buckwheat produces edible seeds that make a gluten-free, very palatable flour, even though it is not related to wheat. Buckwheat is considered allelopathic; which suppresses the growth of other plants and make it a great “weed” control plant. It is used in the culinary world, as a medicinal plant, green manure, soil conditioner and as a cover crop.
