Epazote (Chenopodium ambrosioides) seeds, organic

(3 customer reviews)


Family:  Goosefoot  (Chenopodiaceae)

Perennial hardy to zone 8 to 12, often grown as an annual, 45 days to harvest

(Wormseed, Jesuit’s Tea, Mexican Tea, payqu, Dysphania ambrosioides)  Native to Mexico and the American SW, this pleasantly aromatic plant is the source of a potent spice.  The dried leaf is traditionally mixed in bean dishes.  Traditional usage (TWM): allays flatus, vermifuge. Strew seed on surface of sandy soil and keep moist until germination. Plant prefers full sun, dryish to mesic soils, and does well in standard garden soil, dryland or abandoned places.

Please note:  We will rub this seed as long and hard as we can, and winnow until the cows come home, but the calyx is persistent, and there may be some seeds in the sample not yet divested of their green covering.  We’ve adjusted the seeds per gram accordingly.
