      About the Plant:

      • Atriplex hortensis. An orach or "mountain spinach" collected along the roadside in the village of Vadito, NM.  Likely escaped from local gardens.  More drought tolerant and with a milder flavor than spinach, with a naturally salty flavor, orach can be used like spinach, either fresh or cooked. Tolerant of alkaline soils, orach is easier to grow than spinach.  It is also healthy like its namesake, rich in vitamin C and high in minerals like calcium, potassium, magnesium and zinc.   From our Seed Bank Collection.

        • Grows in the cool season in the low desert.  At higher elevations or northern locations, plant in spring.
        • Prefers cool temperatures for germination.
        • Can grow to 5' tall.
