Good King Henry (OG)

Chenopodium bonus-henrius
HOW TO GROW GOOD KING HENRY

Good King Henry seed is notoriously difficult to germinate. We went through several batches, stratification methods until we cracked the code. For Zone 7b direct sow in the garden in mid-December. Try multiple direct seeding dates. If starting indoors, stratify in a 5-6” deep undivided flat outdoors for 12 weeks beginning in mid January, then bring indoors to germinate. You can also try 10 weeks in the fridge in Perlite or sand, then put close under lights. They key is fresh seed. Unlike many other seeds, viable Good King Henry seeds float. Do not divide until after the third established year in the ground. Early plants have one tap root. Read our Wiki ‘How to Germinate Your Seeds’. Soil pH 5.6-7.8. Hardiness zones 3-9.

Soil Temp. Germ. 60˚F stratify
Days to Germ. 70-80
Plant Spacing 12-18”

Looks like a perennial spinach but is from a different genus and is not as sweet. Leaves are eaten fresh or lightly steamed. Our selection has a very slight pepper taste and is not bitter. The spring shoots harvest lasts up to three months, much longer than asparagus. If harvesting spring shoots, let the first 2-3 grow to maturity to encourage plant root growth and then harvest the subsequent shoots. Rich in vitamins C and A and calcium. Seeds are edible as a grain crop similar to Chenopodiums like Quinoa. Also known as Lincolnshire spinach and fat hen plant. Tags: Certification: Organic.

Old European vegetable primarily grown for its edible asparagus-type shoots. Until the 1900s, Good King Henry was commonly grown in English kitchen gardens. Delicious good king henry recipes.
