A native to Australia where it is known as Warrigal Greens and New Zealand where it is known as New Zealand spinach. The steams are trailing, branching and succulent; the leaves are green, oblong, acuminate and fleshy and the flowers small, yellow and daisy like.
New Zealand spinach is warm season alternative to regular spinach that does well in hot, dry conditions. Regular spinach goes to seed and becomes bitter during warm summer months.
This spinach is valued because of its high vitamin A, vitamin B2 and vitamin C content.
Prefers a poor sandy soil in a protected shaded position, drought resistant but frost tender.
Although seed can be sown most of the year in Australia seed is generally best sown in spring or autumn in temperate climates, avoid the coldest and hottest months of the year. The optimum germination temperature for germination is around 18-22°C
