New Zealand Spinach Specialty Greens


New Zealand Spinach Specialty Greens

Tetragonia tetragonioides
(52 days) Open-pollinated. Captain Cook’s voyagers noted it in 1770 on the shores of Queen Charlotte’s Sound in New Zealand. Doesn’t look like a true spinach or taste like one, though some find it an acceptable substitute because it stands through the hot summer when true spinach bolts. Chefs have discovered that it is a very good green baked, especially in lasagna. Soak the nut-like seeds before sowing to speed and improve germination. Be patient and don’t give up too soon. Only a few plants are needed to fill in your patch because Tetragonia sprawls. Irrigate frequently and pick often to keep the leaves tender and succulent and to avoid yellowing. Will withstand frosts to the low 20s. ~350 seeds/oz.
