When autumn coming ,  farmers finish harvesting their crops on the terraced fields on Dong Van Stone Plateau in the northernmost province of Ha Giang, buckwheat plants start to blossom, turning the whole region into a charming pink painting. The flower is characterized by triangle-shaped pistils and this is why local people call buckwheat the “triangular flower”. Buckwheat flowers characteristically open in pinkish white and then turn light purplish. Nobody knows exactly how long the buckwheat plants have been in the region. However, the locals often use its grain-like seeds to make their food, such as cakes and to make a kind of tasty wine.
