Orach Purple Passion
Often referred to as Mountain Spinach, Purple Passion Orach has 3 times more Vitamin A than normal spinach. It is also very tasty and easy to grow. Purple Passion Spinach can grow up to six feet tall, with beautiful purplish-red leaves, and can be used in place of traditional spinach or chard. Used as a warm-season alternative to spinach, Orach is a cool-season plant that is most productive and flavorful when grown in spring and fall. It is more tolerant of both heat and cold than spinach. Harvest can continue into summer after spinach has gone to seed. Also superb in salads or cooked as a green. Make succession plantings until weather warms and mid-summer plantings for fall harvest.
