CHITRAL HORTICULTURE SOCIETY

Local Practice:

Leaves are collected in March to April and used as a vegetable. In some places the leaves are par-boiled and chopped into a thick paste and small loaves of bread are made which are then sun-dried on roofs to be used in later in winter as an off-season food.
