New Zealand Spinach

Tetragonia tetragonioides

Like Malabar spinach, New Zealand spinach is a great way to enjoy a tender green even in the heat of summer, when regular spinach doesn't grow well. In the warmest regions of the United States, it can be grown as a perennial, but in most regions it grows best as a warm-season annual.

Its flavor is similar than regular spinach but a little milder. The plant grows quite differently from regular spinach. Instead of forming a bunch, New Zealand spinach branches and spreads like a vine. Harvest the interesting medium-green triangular leaves and silvery expanding leaves, and use them exactly as you would spinach -- raw in salads, sauteed, or cooked.
