CERTIFIED ORGANIC! Atriplex hortensis. Not well known in North America, this tasty ornamental plant has been used as a food source since the mesolithic era. Pliny the Elder named the plant Atriplex. It is a useful, fast-growing, open pollinated plant that makes excellent micro-greens, baby leaf, and salad greens. It brings a burst of colour and flavour to salad mixes, and it can be grown in containers. Plant Red Orach Organic seeds at nearly any time of the year for fresh greens in just over a month, or micro-greens in three weeks. Orach is quite similar to spinach in flavour, with a slightly saltier taste, but it is much more heat tolerant than spinach.

Matures in 45 days. (Open-pollinated seeds)
