Black Cumin - Nigella sativa

posted 29 Jul 2015, 00:05 by Dan Nong

Tên tiếng Việt:  Thì Là Đen
 Also called nutmeg flower and roman coriander, plants are 1 foot tall with 1 inch whitish green flowers that produce a large seed pod. Use is primarily culinary, seeds are spicy and aromatic and frequently used in breads and cakes much as you would poppy seeds. 




Black seeds, also known as Nigella sativa, black cumin, kalonji seeds and haba al-barakah (Arabic phrase) have been used by people for thousands of years. Some associate black caraway with black seeds and they come from two different plants. Kalonji seeds are found in India and haba al-barakah is an Arabic word and used in the Middle East mainly. Black seeds are commonly used in the kitchen also in many recipes.

Nigella sativa (black seeds), an annual flowering plant that grows to 20-30cm tall, is native to Asia and the Middle East. The flowers of this plant are very delicate and pale colored and white. The seeds are used in Middle Eastern cooking, such as in their local breads. The seeds are also used by thousands for their natural healing abilities.

Goji Berries

L. barbarum


Goji, goji berry or wolfberry is the fruit of Lycium barbarum (simplified Chinese: 宁夏枸杞; traditional Chinese: 寧夏枸杞; pinyin: Níngxià gǒuqǐ) and Lycium chinense (pinyin: gǒuqǐ), The two species are native to Asia.



L. chinense


Known as: Goji Berry, Goji Berries, Gojiberry, Gojiberries, Western Snowberries, Wolfberry, Wolfberries, Wolf Berry, and Wolf Berries

Wolfberry species are deciduous woody perennial plants, growing 1–3 m high. L. chinense is grown in the south of China and tends to be somewhat shorter, while Lycium barbarum is grown in the north, primarily in the Ningxia Hui Autonomous Region, and tends to be somewhat taller.

The Goji berry is a deep-red, dried fruit about the same size as a raisin. The Goji berry tastes somewhat like a cross between a cranberry and a cherry.

Goji berries have been used in traditional Chinese medicine for thousands of years.Goji berries have also been known to help boost the immune system and protect the eyes — talk about a super fruit. And like other berries, goji berries are also an excellent source of vitamin C and can reduce tough cold symptoms.

Goji berries are an excellent source of antioxidants because of their oxygen radical absorbance cpacity (ORAC) value. An ORAC value indicates a food's antioxidant power on a relative scale, Lee says.

As a plus, goji berries are low in calories, fat-free and are packed with fibre — which also helps you manage weight and go the bathroom on a regular basis.

According to a small study from the Journal of Alternative and Complimentary Medicine, drinking goji berry juice for two weeks helped participants increase their energy levels and improve their gastrointestinal functions. However, it might difficult to find goji berry juice near you, so search online.

Goji berries have been in use for at least the last 1,700 years. First used by the Tibetans in China, these berries have become a staple in not only in Eastern cuisine, but also Eastern medicine.

In Chinese mythology, goji berries are known as the fruit of immortality. Even today, Chinese medicine uses goji berries to treat the liver, immune system, circulation problems, and more.

In traditional Chinese medicine, the goji is said to act on the Kidney and Liver meridians to help with lower back pain, dizziness and eyesight. They are most often consumed raw, made into a tea or extract, or as an ingredient in soups.
Known as the anti-aging fruit, goji berries are an excellent source of antioxidants, vitamins A and C, amino acids, potassium, iron, zinc, and more. Grown in the vast Himalayan Mountain region, goji berries (Lycium barbarum) have long been recognized for their medicinal benefits in Far East medicine. These 100% natural dried berries may help enhance the immune system, protect your eyesight and improve liver function. Our dried goji berries are non-GMO.

Goji berries are perhaps the most nutritionally-rich fruit on the planet. Goji berries contain 18 kinds of amino acids (six times higher than bee pollen) and contain all 8 essential amino acids (such as isoleucine and tryptophan).

Goji berries contain up to 21 trace minerals (the main ones being zinc, iron, copper, calcium, germanium, selenium, and phosphorus).

Goji berries are the richest source of carotenoids, including beta-carotene (more beta carotene than carrots), of all known foods or plants on earth! They contain 500 times the amount of vitamin C, by weight, than oranges making them second only to camu camu berries as the richest vitamin C source on earth. Goji berries also contain vitamins B1, B2, B6, and vitamin E.

Mature fruits contain about 11 mg of iron per 100 grams, beta-sisterol (an anti-inflammatory agent), linoleic acid (a fatty acid), sesquiterpenoids (cyperone, solavetivone), tetraterpenoids (zeaxanthin, physalin), and betaine (0.1%).

Goji berries contain polysaccharides which fortify the immune system. A polysaccharide found in this fruit has been found to be a powerful secretagogue (a substance that stimulates the secretion of rejuvenative human growth hormone by the pituitary gland).

Goji berries have been traditionally regarded as longevity, strength-building and sexual potency food of the highest order. In several study groups with elderly people the berry was given once a day for 3 weeks, many beneficial results were experienced and 67% of the patients T cell transformation functions tripled and the activity of the patient’s white cell interleukin-2 doubled. In addition, the results showed that all the patients spirit and optimism increased significantly, appetite improved in 95% of the patients, 95% of the patients slept better, and 35% of the patients partially recovered their sexual function.

Spinach, Bloomsdale Long Standing

posted 28 May 2015, 20:03 by Huynh Khoa   [ updated 28 May 2015, 20:35 by Khoa Huynh ]

Glossy, dark green savoyed leaves are sweet, tender, fleshy and have a rich flavor. 

Bloomsdale spinach was introduced around 1826 by the Landreth Seed Company. Bloomsdale was the home and farm of David Landreth on the banks of the Deleware.
Popeye's favorite heirloom variety! Bloomsdale Long Standing is an old standard. It's a large, spreading spinach has dark green, savoyed curled leaves. The yield is good, and it is slow to bolt. For first crop, sow in spring. Plant again in late summer. In mild winter areas, fall plantings yield in early spring. 

Bloomsdale is by far the most popular and widely available open pollinated spinach. 
Quick to come up and quick to harvest for baby spinach leaves.
Bloomsdale spinach stands well in warm weather without bolting.

Review:

I have grown this spinach for years. It will bolt in high heat. It is one of my first planets that I set out in the spring. If I harvest early I have no problems. I replant in late summer. It is also one of my last to harvest in the fall. Don't change a thing. Love this.

Cucamelon

posted 14 May 2015, 20:41 by Dan Nong   [ updated 14 May 2015, 21:10 by Khoa Huynh ]




Tiny light green, dark striped, crispy white flesh has cucumber-like flavor with lemony tartness, fascinating little novelty
Melothria scabra, known as 'Cucamelon' or 'Mouse melon' is a tiny melon that has been creating a buzz in the farmer’s markets.
The fruits are small enough to fit into a teaspoon, yet bite into one and the flavour is pure cucumber with a refreshing tinge of lime. Its unique flavour, its pest-free and rampant habit of growth, not to mention its huge productivity, all conspire to recommend this unusual vine to home gardeners looking for something new to add to their menus.

How To Grow Cucamelon

Add a bit of whimsy to your garden this year with an adorable cucamelon plant.  This small plant is a delicate, yet strong vining one that produces dainty fruit resembling a tiny one-inch watermelon.  The fruit has the surprising flavor of a slightly tangy cucumber.  The fruit’s interesting combination of appearance and flavor gives the cucamelon its name.  The cucamelon plant makes for a fun little conversation piece in your backyard.

The cucamelon (Melothria scabra) is a native plant to Mexico and Central America.  Evidence shows these little treats were a staple food source for many early tribal people there.  Nowadays, the cucamelon is also known as mouse melon, Mexican sour gherkin, or Sandiita, which means “little watermelon”  in Spanish.  They are found growing wild in some southern locations in the United States, but they can be grown anywhere, much like its relative, the cucumber.

How to grow and care for cucamelon

Cucamelons are easy to plant and care for.  While seeds can be sown directly after the danger of frost, start the seeds indoors in April or May to lengthen the plant’s fruit production period.  Transplant outdoors after danger of frost.  Provide a trellis or wire for your vines.  Keep the plant watered, and prepare for a bountiful crop from July until the first frost.  Harvest the fruit when it feels firm.  Wait until it pulls from the vine easily.

The cucamelon’s value as an addition to your garden is not limited to its cuteness. Give the little fruits a try in stir fry, in salads, or just pop a few in your mouth for a snack.  They add a crispy burst of flavor to a sandwich or to salsa.  They can also be preserved in the same fashion as pickles.

Pests and problems

Although similar to cucumbers in planting and care, cucamelons are more cold tolerant and drought tolerant.  They prove mini but mighty as they are resilient to pests and other problems. They reseed easily on their own.  Overgrowing may be the only downside to these undersized cuties, but few consider their happy, proliferative nature to be a downside at all.

Cucamelon seeds are not easy to come by.  Once you get a hold of some, you might choose to save seeds.  To do this, pick up overripe fruit that has fallen to the ground.  Place the fruit in a cool location for a couple of weeks to ripen even further.  When the fruit is ready, slice it open and scoop out the seeds.  Place the seeds in a jar of water for at least five days.  When some of the seeds have sunk to the bottom of the jar, rinse the seeds off, spread them on a screen, and set them aside to dry in a cool location.  The seeds are ready to store when they are dry enough to snap when broken.  Seeds can be stored in an airtight jar for up to 10 years.

“Cucamelons can be grown in pretty much the exact same way as regular cucumbers, only they are far easier. They don’t need the cover of a greenhouse, fancy pruning or training techniques and suffer from very few pests. Sow the seed from April to May indoors and plant out when all risk of frost is over. Give them a support the scramble over, keep well watered and that’s pretty much all you will need to do!” —From Home-Grown Revolution.
