Chenopodium gigantium. Such a beautiful sight in the field with sparkly green leaves and a pinky powered centre. Used steamed as spinach, in salad mixes or as a micro green. 12 days micro. 30 baby. 45 full sized.
Tender leaves are wonderful in salads. Young leaves and stem tips are "dusted" with beautiful iridescent magenta. Flavour is similar to Lamb's Quarter. Sow thickly and begin cutting when plants are 6-8" tall. Replant every couple of weeks to ensure a continuous harvest until frost.
