This heirloom vegetable is not only aesthetically striking, but is also quite tasty! Also known as French spinach or mountain spinach, orach has a flavor and texture similar to spinach when picked young. Orach, however, is slower to bolt than spinach and can tolerate warmer weather than spinach. Red Fire orach can easily grow over 4 feet in height if allowed, although the eating quality of its leaves diminishes as the showy plant gets larger.
