New Zealand spinach an unusual heirloom variety with succulent triangular shaped leaves. It is very handy in warmer gardens where it can tolerate the hotter summer months without bolting and going to seed. It is not frost hardy.

Unrelated to ordinary Spinach, this is a pleasant and interesting alternative with fleshy, brittle, green leaves that can be picked repeatedly until the plant is cut down by frost. It is a spreading, somewhat bushy plant that can be given plenty of room for development, say 2½ft in each direction. Easily grown as a half-hardy annual, and cooked like Spinach. 1ft (30cm)
