What are the pros? Wonderful color, nice flavor

What are the cons? A little slow to get going

Review:

I love this plant- the bright leaves have a pleasing spinach like texture, a mild (but tasty) flavor and color is even better than it looks in the photos! Even the first little sprouts a wonderful, saturated magenta. Only down side so far is that they don't seem to be growing as vigorously as they could be- but we haven't any truly hot weather yet- it might just be waiting for summer to get started!

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.
