Tetragonia tetragonioides

NZ Spinach (Warrigal) is a very old heirloom, it was introduced to England & Europe in 1772. It’s not related to true spinach, but its leaves have a very similar more mild taste. Used in the same manner as spinach but the plant is very different. It does not bolt in hot weather or usually turn bitter. It is heat resistant & does well in warm weather. Produces profusely all season if kept picked. It is wonderful cooked & fresh. High in vitamin C. A wonderfully unique addition to the garden!

Seeds tend to have a lower germ rate, soaking seeds in warm water for 24 hours will help. Direct sow outdoors after danger of serious frost has passed, from mid-spring to early summer, covering with fine soil in full to partial sun. Keep soil moderately moist during germination. Consistently moist, not water-logged.
