Spinach, Red Aztec (Chenopodium berlandieri) packet of 300 seeds, organic

$2.95

Family:  Lamb’s Quarters (Chenopodiaceae)

Annual, 40 days to harvest

(Huazontle) Native to Mexico, this Lamb’s Quarters variant is distinguished by the tasty edibility of its leaves that blush red.  Flowering to 5 feet, we suggest keeping the plants cut back (into the salad bowl). Losing the battle against flowering, one can always resort to the Mexican practice of deep-frying the flower buds.  Plant prefers full sun to part shade and regular garden soils. Sow in spring.  Sow in a shallow finger furrow, barely cover seed and keep evenly moist until germination, which occurs in 1 to 2 weeks.

100 Seeds/pkt, Certified Organically Grown
