Tetragonia tetragonioides

Warrigal Greens are a long-lived, spreading, green vegetable, native to Australia and NZ, with fleshy, succulent, triangular leaves. It is extremely hardy and resistant to pests and disease. It is also heat, drought and light frost tolerant. It is best steamed quickly as the high vitamin C content becomes more readily available and the oxalate content is reduced.

Grow in full sun, in a loose, well-drained soil, mulch well. Self-sows readily. Sow spring and summer, autumn in warmer frost-free areas. Long lived in temperate areas only. This is a 'must-have' plant for arid areas, where it should grown in the shade, if possible.

Grown using organic heirloom open pollinated seed, no sprays, no chemicals in organic nutrient rich soil with gypsum, volcanic rock, minerals and compost in trays. No blood and bone no fish.
