Review:

Seeds have come in the mail and we can hardly wait to try growing this beautiful plant - and making the Romanian soup mentioned in another review. We even coincidentally ordered lavage seeds to try this year. I would love to find out how you pronounce the name of this plant. Do you pronounce the ch as ck?

Review:

I just purchased home and previous owner had lovely raised bed garden....I have tons of this stuff growing. first everyone said it's weed pull it, I started pulling but decided to research and found out it was orach, but don't know if I should share it with others because don't want them to get sick or anything...the leaves are silky and now the plants are 6 to 12 inches tall

What are the pros? Exceptional color & flavor

What are the cons? none

Review:

Taste: I originally planted orach to feed to my bunny but I can't stop eating it! It makes even the most mundane salads exciting with it's brilliant fuchsia color and subtle mineral flavor. I have not tried a hot preparation yet but as a cousin to spinach I am sure the meaty mature leaves would make a nice addition or substitute to any such dish. Growing: I live in zone 10 and I planted these seeds along side my winter lettuce crop. It sprouted along with the lettuces but was a slow starter. I have not found it to be bitter at all, but I suspect heat, soil, and the age of the plant may affect it's flavor.

What are the pros? Very tasty!

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

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!
