If you love orach, or greens in general, you should try this variety, which could have been lost forever. A vivid yellow-green selection of an old-timey kitchen garden favorite, this variety was originally stewarded by the Abundant Life Foundation, which suffered a tragic fire in 2003 that destroyed practically their entire seed operation, from computers to seeds. Thankfully, our friends at Wild Garden Seeds (also our source for these seeds), had been preserving 'Golden' orach since 1982, and have been able to keep this beautiful and delicious variety available.
