This is not really a spinach. It provides copious amount of leaves for salads and cooked greens. Once it is established it is vigorous and trouble-free. New Zealand spinach seeds need lots of heat to germinate. Soak the small, hard seed overnight before planting. The flavour is better if the plants have some shade from the sun. Pick the leaves and young shoots of this trailing plant regularly to lengthen the harvest.
