Warrigal Greens Plant // Tetragonia-tetragonioides

 

Warrigal Greens are a hardy spinach-like plant native across south eastern Australia. They're easy to care for, and are an excellent ground cover producing bright, green leaves than can be harvested and bleached like spinach. Warrigal Greens are native also to Chile, Argentina and New Zealand. 


European records haven't shown many Aboriginal uses for the plants, however there it has formed part of Maori cuisine in neighbouring New Zealand.

 
Like spinach and other leafy greens, Warrigal Greens contain oxalates meaning that it's important that they're blanched or cooked before eating (the heat removes the acid). 

Harvesting: Simply harvest the leaves, cook and enjoy! Great in soups, stir fries, or to be used like spinach. 

Growing Conditions: Warrigal Greens do well in sunny to shady positions. They prefer to be kept in a moist, rich, free draining loam, but can tolerant some poor soils. One thing you may notice is that it will die back during the winter, and return during the summer.

Size: As a ground cover, it may sprawl to approximately 2 metres across and 15-20cm in height. It is great for pots!
