Good King Henry - Chenopodium bonus Henricus
Good King Henry, which is an ancient vegetable, is a dark green succulent plant with large arrow shaped leaves and tiny green yellow flowers. The leaves are mild in flavour and may be cooked like spinach and served with butter. The young shoots can be cooked like asparagus and served in the same way. This plant is a perennial, but will need winter protection if the leaves are to be harvested during this period.
