New Zealand Spinach, also known as Tetragonia is used like spinach in cooking and salads. This frost-tender plant is ready for harvest when spinach is on the wane and stays productive throughout summer. Requires plenty of moisture.
Planting Instructions: Plant directly in the garden as soon as ground can be worked and danger of frost has passed. Repeat plantings every two weeks to extend the harvest season of fresh spinach. Best growth occurs in spring and fall, and be sure to do a second sowing in late summer for a fall crop.
Suggestions: Harvest entire plants at the soil line when outer leaves are 6 inches long. Or, just cut away outer leaves as needed for a continuous crop until hot weather. Sow again in the late summer.
