Heirloom Orach


(aka Mountain Spinach, Russian Spinach) This leafy green was first documented in the New World by John Lawson, Surveyor General of North Carolina, in History of Carolina, 1714. Orach was also listed by Bernard McMahon in American Gardener's Calendar, 1806. Orach is a hardy, annual vegetable suitable for full sun that grows four to five feet tall. The young leaves can be steamed like spinach or chard and are very nutritious. Thanks to Darlene Brown of Rochester, AB for sending me some Orach seeds to grow this spring.

Red Orach (Atriplex hortenis)

A beautiful addition to the garden, Red Orach produces reddish purple leaves that can be added to salad all summer long. Can also be steamed like Green Orach but will loose its nice purple color and turn green. More heat tolerant than regular spinach and highly nutritious.
