(Tetragonia tetregonioides) 60 days. Not the same species as common spinach; this variety takes the heat and keeps producing all summer. Tasty. Was listed by Fearing Burr in 1863 in his book, Field and Garden Vegetables of America (see our books). Not frost hardy.

What are the pros? Prolific, but takes time

What are the cons? Very salty due to oxalic acied

Review:

It took forever to germinate, and I even reseeded. I had really given up on it, and then it took off. I got tons of leaves. A bit in a lasagna, soup, stew is OK, but it has alot of oxalic acid in it, and I found it too salty.

Review:

Tried this for the first time and have been very pleased. Planted it in the early spring and now it is August and the plants are going strong. No bugs, lots of growth, no problem with bitterness. Had some on a salad last night. My son goes to the garden and eats it right off the plant. Cooks well and stores well in the fridge raw. Have had little luck with other spinach but this one is a keeper!

Review:

I live in San Francisco bay area zone 8b. I sowed half a package of this seeds in the beginning of May, and only 6 came up, and only 4 plants survived. All summer, they were too small to pick any leaf. Now, October 12, they are finally about 10" tall. However, even I harvested all the leaves, it's not enough or a meal. I still have some seeds left, so I might try again next year, if I have space, but this plant is not my priority.

Review:

After trying and failing with other types of spinach here in Honolulu I gave this one a try because of its heat tolerance. Has grown great with 80 degree temperatures and constantly sunny days. Haven't gone through a rainy winter yet so will see how it fairs with a bit of rain and lack of sunshine. Overall glad to finally have a cooked spinach in my garden even if eating it raw isn't an option. Funny thing is I found this growing wild on Maui right near the ocean.
