A European favorite, Red Orach pleases the eye and the palate. The lovely rich red leaves and stems add spark to salads and mesclun mixes. You can enjoy this heirloom fresh and just-picked or lightly cook it as you would other greens. Performs remarkably well in high heat and is unperturbed by salt and wind. Begin picking the young leaves once the plants are several inches tall or harvest full stems when they reach 12-18" tall. If left to grow to full size, plants will reach 3'.
