Magentaspreen-Lambsquarters Greens (Organic 30 Days)

3 reviews

A giant relative of Lambsquaters grown for its glowing magenta young leaf tips. Easy to grow in heat or cold, where it can be harvested at 8 inches in 30 days or left to continue upward to 8 feet. With a taste similar to spinach each tip is magenta coated with powdery iridescence. Spectacular in a salad mix or use any way you would many greens, steamed. Cultivated in the other parts of the world and first introduced here in the early 1980’s. It will self seed if left to grow.

Very nutritious!

I do love magenta-spreen. I have them coming up everywhere now. Lambsquarters are a winter staple of ours. I pick and freeze in May to have all winter. You may not realize that lambsquarters have more Vitamin A than liver! (see USDA tables)But the one drawback is that these lambsquarters are so beautiful that I hate cutting them. Prettier than flowers.

So far ao good

At this point the seeds have germinated and are growing in a garden tower on my deck. Only time will. I was pleased to be able to find the lambsquarter seeds
