Description

Orach - Red - Atriplex hortensis

Hardy Annual Red Orach is also called Mountain Spinach. The magenta-red leaves will not change color when cooked. Use this nutritious green in salads (small, raw leaves) or take the larger leaves and cook them. The flavor is a nuttier version of spinach. Orach grows well in warm weather when spinach bolts.

Did You Know? Drop a leaf in a pot of cooking rice to make the rice a rosy color.

Soil and Water: Orach wants moderately fertile soil with added organic matter. Provide moderate water.

Planting and Growing: These greens prefer cooler weather, but tolerate warm temperatures. Start seeds indoors 3 weeks before the last frost and continue planting every 2 weeks until midsummer.

love it!

I love growing orach. It grows well in all soil types, in sun and in shade, its the first up in the spring and lasts all summer long. I let some of it go to seed at the end of the season, and have an abundance the next year (plus, i can watch for orach sprouts to know when to plant my spring garden!). Oh, and did I mention it is delicious and just gorgeous, too?
