Red Cholai has been cultivated as a grain for 8,000 years. The yield of cholai is comparable to rice or maize.

It can also be used to extract oil – a particularly valued pressed seed oil with many commercial uses.

A nutritious, leafy green for warmer areas. It is a fast-growing and best to harvest the whole plant as older plants get tough and bitter tasting.

Planting & Care

  • Successive sowings will provide greens over a long period.
  • The leaves have a sweet, tangy flavour and are best cooked, raw leaves should not be eaten very often, as they are high in nitrates and oxalic acid.
  • Thinly sprinkle the seed on the ground and rake it in.

  • It can cope with heat and dry conditions a lot better than any other leafy green.
