(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? 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.

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!
