I feel it’s chenopodium murale…i would like to know your valuable comments…


Chenopodium murale does not have this whitish bloom, leaves are more greener, larger and lobed, plus it is a more compact plant.

Chenopodiaceae and Amaranthaceae Week:: UD 003 :: Chenopodium alba from market for vegetable: Called Beto shaak or Bethua shaak in local Bangali parlance

Local markets sell it, coming from farms, mainly in winter
I like the very tiny white flowers and the varied leaves shape
And margins in the terminal end of the herb.
Ayurvedic folks recommend it to pacify Pitta.

Similar to spinach in vitamins and mineral contents, it also seems to have some oxalic acid, just like spinach.  (I forgot to mention that earlier in my spinach submission), so some caution is recommended.


By the way it is Chenopodium album. When a character is used to name a species, it has to agree with the gender of the genus (Rosa alba, Chenopodium album, Mallotus albus’ Oryza sativa, Allium sativum, Lathyrus sativus) unless it is a tree (tree in classical Latin is Feminine, so would be the names (Pinus wallichiana, Malus domestica, Prunus persica)
