As a food
“Pseudo-cereal”: Pseudo (false) cereal (grain producing grass) - Buckwheat is grown, harvested, and used like a grain but is genetically unrelated to these crops
Hulled seeds (“groats”) can be cooked and eaten like a grain
Most commonly milled into flour for products like soba noodles and pancakes
First domesticated in Southwestern and Northern China and is still used in regional medicine and cuisine today
Good balance of all essential amino acids
Gluten-free and Celiac-safe
Unique nutty taste
As a crop
Well-suited to growing conditions in the western PNW
Grows quickly and is harvested in 60-90 days
Commonly grown as cover crop
Attracts pollinators throughout the growing season
Wide canopy that suppresses weeds
