Tree Spinach
Chenopodium giganteum
Duration: Annual
When to Sow: Spring     
Ease of Germination: Easy

(Magenta spreen; Purple goosefoot; Giant lambsquarters) With a splash of magenta at the stem tips this is a one hot new green for the garden, suited for salads, omelettes, frittatas, quiches, curries and soups. The young shoots are tasty, milder and, many say, better than spinach. As the name suggests this is a giant spinach that will tower up to 2m/6ft if you let it, but the young shoots are best gathered when plants are just 20cm/8in tall. High in vitamins A and C and rich in calcium and iron. Native to India, cultivated in China, and introduced to America by heirloom guru Alan Kapuler. Very easy. 30 days.
