Orach Seeds - Green Velvet
(Atriplex hortensis) 40 days (tender leaves), 75 days (mature plant)
If you love spinach, but your plants tend to bolt in the summer heat, try growing Green Velvet Orach - a heat tolerant nutritious green (some say it’s even tastier than spinach). Its vibrant green leaves and pink stems are a beautiful sight, growing upwards of 6 feet tall! Orach is derived from the latin word ‘aurago’ meaning golden herb and we couldn’t agree more! Tender leaves can be eaten raw or cooked - enjoy!
