(Tetragonia tetragonioides) 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. Not frost hardy.

This is an interesting little plant. We got a beautiful crop from your seeds. It's tasty steamed. I froze some to add to soups this winter.

Favorite but Low Germination
Easy to Grow 0.0
EarlyMaturity 0.0
 

What are the pros? Great raw. LOW germination

What are the cons? Only one seed germinated!

Review:

I LOVE this stuff which is why I ordered seeds. I scored them, soaked in water for 3 days, planted in ground and nothing came up from ground! ONE seed germinated in a pot so that’s my total from the packet. I even soaked some in wet paper towels for two weeks in a baggie. No germination from them, either. Was it bad seed and is there a way to get viable seed? I would only recommend it for its taste and succulence.

What are the pros? Heat loving, easy, prolific

What are the cons? Not great raw but good cooked

Review:

I’ve given up on growing spinach and all but given up on lettuce. It gets so hot here everything bolts. I’ve been on a mission to find other greens that I can eat throughout the summer and this one has definitely made the list! It grows in abundance! It Is full of water. Almost like a succulent. I prefer these cooked personally.

What are the pros? Doesn't go bitter

What are the cons? Fuzzy texture

Review:

I got seed for this plant years ago. My first time trying to grow it, it didn't sprout much. I was advised to put the entire package of seeds in because it has a low germination rate. I only got one or two plants out of the package but since then, it pops up everywhere. It doesn't go bitter when it blooms or when it makes seeds. It does have a bit of a fuzzy texture, but it works well cooked or in sandwiches or shakes. I have had this grow in poor soil under the original pot, and in the front yard over 20 feet away. I have noticed the poorer the soil, the darker it is. It doesn't mind the heat, being too wet, or a drought. I don't mind it growing everywhere because it is super easy to pull new plants out if I don't grow it there, and it doesn't seem to compete with other plants. At this pound I have an entire 2 by 3 foot patch of nothing but that.

What are the pros? Grows easily, massive yields

What are the cons? Texture, texture, texture

Review:

This is one of the easiest things I have ever grown. Throw some seeds into the dirt and come back to massive amounts of spinach. The issue for me was the texture. It was almost waxy, but somehow reminded me of how my dogs ear feels at the same time with that soft subtle furriness that was just unpleasant when eaten raw. Texture aside this is a great plant, and with how hot summers can be in Michigan this plant was able to produce throughout the heat without an issue. Dare I say I may have neglected it a bit once I knew I wasn't a fan of the texture, but it kept on going strong.
