Chenopodium berlandieri
This goosefoot species (say “wah-zont-lay”) is found in archeological association with Old Peoples of the New World all the way from the Aztecs of tropical Central America, north and east into the southern Appalachian cave-sheltering tribes. The agricultural sophistication of attending cultures has been inferred from the degree of seed coat thinning (a result of domestication) in seed from midden sites verses wild seeds of the same era. Aztecs prepared high protein dishes using the immature bright red seed heads and leaves.

Suggested for salad use like its relatives, with a nice sweet and salty taste. Seeds germinate readily in 3 days, like quinoa—more reliable than lambs quarter.
