Orach is a green related to Lamb's quarter, from the Amaranthaceae family and Chenopodioideae subfamily. It can be used as a spinach or sorrel substitute, great in salads or cooked.

Orach is an annual plant. This variety comes the garden of our friend Francois Medion, of Duluth, Minnesota, where it has become a 're-wilded' fixture in his backyard. Francois is a talented bread maker and market gardener. If you stop into the Duluth Grill, right off I-35 as you are entering into Duluth, you may just be eating some of his produce.

*This seed is now essentially wild in its stratification habit. It currently resides in our freezer. We put seeds into packets as they are ordered. We are confident this seed will germinate for you, and because of its stratification requirements, we have elected not to get it germination tested.
