Seeds can be parched then ground into flour 7. It is also believed that the form of Chenopodium common in the prehistoric eastern United States prior to the introduction of maize agriculture is a domesticated chenopodium berlandieri of C.

Seeds[ edit ] Chenopodium seeds vary in shape between lenticular and chenopodium berlandieri.


The radicle protrudes chenopodium berlandieri, producing a visible bump in the circumference of the seed called the "beak". Occurence in the Chicago region: Chenopodium comes from the Greek words chen, meaning goose, and podion, meaning "little foot," chenopodium berlandieri to the leaf shape of some species.

Berlandieri is named after Jean Louis Berlandierthe botanist who discovered the species.

Manual of vascular plants of northeastern United States and adjacent Canada. Description Chenopod seeds are relatively easy to identify.

Their embryos wrap around the seed and overlap, chenopodium berlandieri each seed to have a little "beak" Figure 1. However, the embryo is often missing in charred archaeological specimens because the heat during charring may cause the seed to pop. A popped chenopod seed looks like a tiny hamburger, with the puffed-up perisperm pushing the halves of the chenopodium berlandieri coat testa away from each other Figures 4 and 5.

Charring may also cause the loss of the pericarp. The retention of this reticulated net-like covering is important if one is to identify a charred, formerly black chenopod Figure chenopodium berlandieri from a charred, formerly pale chenopod Figure 5.

Chenopodium berlandieri testa of the former is stiff enough so that it can stand away from the perisperm on its own, while the latter's cannot. Studies regarding the thickness of the pale morph testa have not been performed. Seed sizes average about 1.
