Also called Saracen corn, Saracen wheat, and beechwheat, buckwheat is an herb-aceous plant which will grow in poor soil.

Because its seeds yield a flour from which bread can be made, it is often considered a cereal. Rarely used in Great

Britain, buckwheat is grown extensively in Russia and in parts of France, Italy, Holland and the United States. It is used

to make a kind of porridge, pancakes and bread.
