The name means “fingers of God”. Our seed came originally from a seed saver in Idaho. It is supposedly a cross between an early grain type and a vegetable type, making it valuable both for the delicious leaves and the nutritious seeds. The tall plants have waxy, purple leaves and light beige seeds, making threshing easy.
