New Zealand Spinach
New Zealand Spinach is a trailing plant that forms a mat of triangular soft fleshy foliage with a crystalline appearance, giving succulent leaves and stem tips throughout the season, continuing long after other varieties have finished. In fact, the more you pick, the more the plant produces. Before planting soak seeds in hot water for 24 hours and then sow 3-4 seeds in mounds spaced 70cm apart. Or can be started early in pots for indoor culture. Inherent low germination rate.
Matures 40 days from direct sowing.
