Healthsome is a synonym for wholesome, healthful as in 'what a healthsome food brown rice is!" but how widely is it used by you native speakers?

    "Shall I not, then, be stifled in the vault,
    To whose foul mouth no healthsome air breathes in,
    And there die strangled ere my Romeo comes?"

    But, otherwise, I agree: it is rare in modern Englsih.
