Description

Chenopodium ambrosioides Epazote, Wormseed. Perennial wormwood-like plant is the source of a potent spice and vermifuge. In sufficient dosage, and especially if the seeds are taken by themselves, the plant will aid in expulsion of intestinal worms. The dried leaf is traditionally mixed in bean dishes, a tasty practice that also allays flatus.

  • Plant prefers full sun and does well in waste ground.
  • Strew seed on surface of sandy soil and keep moist until germination.
  • Takes about 1 week to germinate.
  • Thin or transplant to 1 to 2 ft. apart.

Certified organic, 300 seeds/pkt.
