  1. Hi !
    do you know if tareh is the same as gandana (afghan greens) ?

    Thanks !

    • Hi Nilu. It seems like gandana and Persian tareh are the same or at least that’s what the Google search shows. Their images sure looked the same to me and I came across some Afghani recipes that asked for either gandana or tareh. I hope this helps.

  2. Thanks for your response !
    I have some friends here in Switzerland who are afghan refugees and they miss the gandana flavour ! I try to find some seeds but it’s impossible !!
    Maybe tareh seeds is more easier to find…
    I will be glad to offer them some seed. Do you know an online shop who sell them ?
    Thanks for your help 🙂

    • Unfortunately I couldn’t find an online store that ships internationally. carries tareh seeds but they ship only to US and Canada. I tried my best and my search didn’t turn up anything. You weren’t kidding about gandana being impossible to find!

  3. Oh ! Thanks very much for your search you’re lovely !
    I will continue to search and maybe find some seeds one day…
    I hope so !
    Thank you, Thank you 🙂

  4. what a great list to have handy!
