Prairie Road Organic Seed Orach salad crop grown from certified organic seed.

Magenta Magic orach

Regular price $3.55 Sale

 CERTIFIED ORGANIC SEED, 1 packet (100 seeds)

(Atriplex hortensis) This cold-tolerant salad crop, also know as mountain spinach, produces early harvests of arrow shaped salad leaves with eye-catching fuchsia color; the deepest, darkest red of all orach varieties. Like spinach, young leaves are prepared in salads; mature leaves and stems are used for steaming and cooking. Striking upright plant grows 4-5 feet tall, yet holds its flavor even as the plant matures in summer heat. Can allow to reseed in a controlled fashion.

Growing Notes  
Direct seed anytime early spring to midsummer. Planting depth: 1/4-1/2 inch with a 2 inch spacing. Thin to 6-18 inches apart, harvesting thinnings. Pinch flower buds to encourage branching and more young vegetative growth. Make succession plantings; plant mid-summer for fall harvest.
