What is orach?
A cool season plant, orach is a warm season alternative to spinach that is less likely to bolt. A member of the Chenopodiaceae family, orach (Atriplex hortensis) is also known as Garden Orache, Red Orach, Mountain Spinach, French Spinach and Sea Purslane. It is also sometimes referred to as Salt Bush due to its tolerance for alkaline and saline soils. The name orach is derived from the Latin ‘aurago’ meaning golden herb. A native of Europe and Siberia, orach is possibly one of the more ancient cultivated plants. It is grown in Europe and the northern plains of the United States as a substitute for spinach either fresh or cooked. The flavor is reminiscent of spinach and is often combined with sorrel leaves. The seeds are also edible and a source of vitamin A. They are ground into a meal and mixed with flour for making breads. Seeds are also used to make a blue dye. Aurora Orach Mix OG (38 days) Open-pollinated. In his Wild Garden Seed catalog, originator Frank Morton calls it âmountain spinach for merry pranksters.â This mix of golden, dark purple, purple and carmine day-glo will give orach a whole new aura in your garden and salad mixes.
