There is a story associated with this green; the kedive (king) of Egypt loved it so much that was all he ever ate; it is told that he would forbid his subjects from enjoying it. One time he was swimming in the Nile and he never came back.
This plant was named after him and is extremely popular in Lebanon. Taken from our kitchen garden in the mountain, ready to be harvested. (it can be frozen in plastic bags).
