Fenugreek Herb is a popular herb variety predominantly used in Indian and Middle-Eastern cooking. Fenugreek Herb is used as a herb (either fresh or dry), spice (seeds) or as a vegetable (leaves, or sprouts), making the plant a highly versatile addition to any herb garden. The seeds themselves smell like curry, providing an interesting addition to the conventional herb garden.
Fenugreek Herb does not do well in water-logged positions in the garden, but otherwise is a very hardy and usually reasonably drought tolerant plant. This variety is believed to have medicinal properties, particularly in the natural treatment of diabetes through the use of Fenugreek Herb.
