Review:

Everyone has been writing about how they use red orach in salads so I wanted to add a suggestion you may like to try: soup! In Romania, where I was born, red orach soup is a traditional spring soup that is VERY popular and tasty. In the States, since I haven't been able to find orach at any grocery store, I went for a very long time without this soup, until I learned to grow my own thanks to rareseed.com. I will be forever grateful to rareseeds for being able to re-create this childhood favorite. Here's a couple recipes: http://foodcocktail.com/red-orach-sour-soup/ and http://www.uncover-romania.com/about-romania/romanian-recipes/soups/red-orach.html. For a REAL Romanian experience, you may want to substitute lovage for parsley (we use lovage like Americans use parsley).

RED Orach review
Easy to Grow 5.0

What are the pros? Easy to direct sew in garden

What are the cons? None so far

Review:

Beautiful color, a little bit of a slow starter I think because of our heat, Even though I am keeping them well watered. I would find information on whether they prefer alkaline or acid soils helpful, does anyone know? Also any information on spacing for these 4 foot plants I hear about? Mine are smaller than that although this is my first time growing them. They taste FABULOUS fresh in a salad with mixed greens. Loved them in a spinach salad with different types of spinach and warm bacon dressing vinegarette!

Review:

Millions of golden seeds on a burgundy plant makes for a wonderful Fall color. We use the leaves of orach for smoothies. I am constantly pulling out small plants in the Spring because it reseeds itself all over (even when I cut off the large seed heads. Great plant to have in the garden.

Review:

Grew last season. Saved seed, and try fall sowing in Minnesota. One of the first things to sprout in the garden, tiny seedlings survived 2 snowfalls and plenty of cold. Nearly invasive in it's hardiness, currently growing out of cracks in blacktop of parking lot. Very pretty, can be used for landscaping.

Review:

I have been growing these for about 6 years in the Willamette Valley, OR. I just let them self reseed and have a crop every year. They grow about 3' here. Finches love to eat the young leaves.
