Purple Orach Seeds


Atriplex hortensis


Also known as mountain spinach, this ancient vegetable is more drought-resistant and slower to bolt than spinach. Growing quickly, up to 5 feet tall with large deep purple leaves, it can create a windblock or shady space for beneficial insects in your garden. The leaves have a unique salty flavour, and can be harvested as microgreens, or prepared as you would spinach, raw or cooked. Open pollinated.


Avg. 75 seeds / 0.5 gram
