Lambsquarter, Magenta Spreen (Organic)
$3.50 – $18.00
Chenopodium giganteum. 30 days baby, 60 days full.
An exciting relative of spinach, quinoa, and wild lambsquarters. The young plants have a great mild tangy flavor and shimmering magenta color in the leaf centers. Excellent in salad when young, even lightly cooked as a pot herb, stir fry green or any way spinach is used. It is much more heat tolerant than spinach and is similarly packed with nutrients. Not as weedy as wild lambsquarters but it can go feral in the garden if the seed is left to shatter. Some gardeners love this trait as it lends a self-perpetuating element to the annual garden. Aka, Giant Goosefoot.
