(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.

Review:

I grew this plant last year, and was amazed by the yield. It just kept on growing until we had a hard frost, when it finally died back. We used it in salads and sandwiches, as well as a cooked green. We even put it in lasagne. Even though the write-up claimed that is was slow to germinate, I didn't find this to be the case. Direct sewn into my raised beds, it grew quickly and spread up over the sides of the beds to trail beautifully.

What are the pros? Perennial...

What are the cons? None

Review:

Sowed seeds a few years ago in late spring; comes out (re-seeds itself!) every spring... in my zone 5 (five) in Ontario, Canada!!! It grows like a weed (absolutely no help from me!) and tastes like spinach. We had to give away (LOTS) to neighbours and friends. I see that people in the South complain that it does not do very well in the summer heat; well, New Zealand is milder than Texas or Alabama, folks:)

What are the pros? it is finally arriving!

What are the cons? doesn't like our heat

Review:

we are over 100 a lot in the summer and it just sat dormant in the garden until Sept/Oct but is really taking off now. So I don't know that it likes this much heat! Will enjoy through fall it appears. Some powder mildew issues but it seems somewhat resistant as its still growing and producing.

What are the pros? easy, perennial

What are the cons? small leaves

Review:

I grow this as a perennial groundcover. The vegetable garden is not a good place for it, better under trees or in an odd corner of the garden. It does not germinate easy, I think I soaked in hot water. It dies back when severe frost hits, it will come again (depending on the temperature). It is one of the perennial vegetables permaculturists like so much. NZ spinach must be boiled in water and the water thrown out to get rid of the oxalic acid. I don't use the stems and for this reason I don't use it a lot because the leaves are much smaller than with usual spinach.

What are the pros? Taste

What are the cons? Slow to germinate

Review:

Wonderful flavor although we've only picked it when it was smaller than 6". The kids adore it and I've been using it as a substitute for regular spinach in recipes.
