Teaser: This spinach-like plant thrives in hot dry weather.
Description:

Heirloom Vegetable

This spinach-like plant thrives in hot dry weather. Interestingly, it is a native of Australia and a "non-endemic" wild species in New Zealand. Cultivated in European and North American gardens for about the last 100 years. Our heirloom variety is not significantly different than the wild plant. Small but broad pointed leaves develop on large, spreading plants - tender leafy shoots. Tolerant of salty soils. Due to low to medium levels of oxalates in the leaves, we recommend blanching the leaves in hot water for at least a minute followed by a cold water rinsing - discard the cooking water - leaves should not be eaten raw.
