Orach Seeds

Grow Orach seeds and grow some beautiful herb plants for an edible landscape. Atriplex hortensis, commonly referred to as Garden Orache, Red Orach, Mountain Spinach, or French Spinach, is a hardy, annual herb plant that grows upright up to 24-72 inches tall depending on where it is grown and the variety.
The leaves are variously shaped, but somewhat oblong, comparatively thin in texture, and slightly acid to the taste. The flowers are small and obscure, greenish or reddish, corresponding in a degree with the color of the foliage of the herb plant.
Orach is a cool season plant, but it does not bolt as quickly as regular spinach.
The leaves can be harvested longer into the summer without any bitter taste, and they are used as salad greens or cooked.

Sow the seeds in the spring as early as the soil can be worked. Thinly cover the herb seeds and keep them moist.
Sow seeds 2 inches apart and in rows 12 to 18 inches apart. Thin the young plants when they are 6 inches in height, leaving 12 to 18 inches for spacing. The thinned plants can be eaten. Harvest the young leaves like spinach.
