CERTIFIED ORGANIC! Trigonella foenum-graecum. This pungent herb, also known as methi, is widely used in Mediterranean, Middle-Eastern, and South Asian cuisines. Its fresh or dried leaves can be used as a herb, and its seeds can be used as a spice. Fenugreek also makes very tasty, strongly flavoured sprouts or micro-greens. It is in the legume family, and closely related to fava beans, so it will fix nitrogen in the soil if allowed to grow to maturity. The pale yellow and white flowers are followed by pods that will take on a straw colour when the seeds are mature. The plants can reach 60cm (24") tall.


    • AKA methi
    • Annual
    • Grows to 60cm (24")
    • 30-40 days for immature leaves
    • 105-140 days for seeds



Fenugreek responds poorly to root disturbance so either direct sow once the soil begins to warm up in late spring, or start indoors in peat pots or other compostable pots that can be transplanted whole. Ideal temperature for germination: 18°C (65°F). Seeds should sprout in 7-10 days.


Fresh leaves are ready to harvest in 30 to 40 days, once the plants are 25cm (10") tall. Try using fenugreek as a cut-and-come-again crop by cutting back to 10cm (4") above the soil. If growing for seed, allow the plants to mature fully through the flowering and pod stage. The pods will turn yellow and the lower leaves will begin to drop once the seeds are mature.
