Ruby Red Orach

Certified Organic Seed

Atriplex hortensis

Vibrant magenta leaves make an excellent alternative to spinach.

This seed will be available after January 10. 

Grown as part of an edible landscaping plan, this gorgeous and mild-tasting green can be eaten raw or cooked as an alternative to spinach. Sauté Orach’s vibrant magenta leaves with butter and garlic, liven up soups and pasta dishes, or brighten salads. Does well in containers or densely sowed for vibrantly-hued microgreens. Continuously pinch back the mature plant for heavier production of tender, arrow-shaped leaves.
