New Zealand Spinach

50 Seeds

$ 3.59

(Tetragonia tetragonoides) Unique, edible green reportedly discovered by botanist Sir Joseph Banks while on the expedition of the South Pacific led by Captain Cook (1768-1771).  Subsequently released to English gardeners and widely adopted as a heat-tolerant alternative to common spinach.  Although not a true spinach, the leaves have a similar flavor and like spinach, can be eaten raw or cooked.  Plants have a low-growing, sprawling habit and will fill out whatever space you give them.  Produces edible leaves roughly 55 days from planting, with harvests continuing until frost.  Can be grown as a perennial in frost-free climates.  50 seeds per packet.

CULTURE: Sow seeds outdoors after danger of frost has passed.  Soak seeds overnight and sow 1/2" deep, 6" apart in rows 3-4' apart.  Trim back as needed.
