Tetragonia tetragonoides

HEIRLOOM This leafy green relishes hot weather so plant in spring for a nutritious summer harvest. Soak seeds 24 hours before planting. Harvest the young plant tips for best flavor and cook like spinach or swiss chard. Resistant to many garden pests that plague more common plant families.

These plants are not true spinach, but they will satisfy a mid-summer craving for nutrient dense greens when itÂ’s too hot for most other plants.
