or Lincolnshire Spinach has long-stalked, arrowshaped leaves very mild in flavor and nutritious.

It is perennial at least to zone 6, emerging very early in spring.

BOTANICAL NAME: Chenopodium esculentus

GROWING INSTRUCTIONS:

Start in pots in fall or very early spring-needs a period of moist cold (stratification) before sprouting when weather warms. Outdoors is best, as fluctuating temperatures help germination.

Perennial zones 5-9. Tolerates shade-doesn't like hot weather.
