Latin name: Fagopyrum esculentum
Buckwheat must be sown in early summer to ensure good vegetative growth, and is sometimes cultivated to produce a second harvest (in such cases, sown behind barley or a winter pea). It can bolt quite easily and become a weed in the next crop (it is a knotweed). On the other hand, its very early flowering can be an asset for feeding pollinating insects.
