Plant Triple Purple Orach Organic seeds for the very darkest of all salad greens. This orach variety loves hot weather, and keeps its profound colour while many other greens have gone pale. The succulent savoyed leaves have a refreshing and faintly salty taste that combines beautifully in summer salads. Orach is a cousin of amaranth and quinoa, and it will produce vaguely similar seed heads if left to mature. But orach is better as a baby salad green, and more interesting as such than either amaranth or quinoa. The saltiness of its flavour makes it very distinctive. Your guests will want to know how you grew it!
