Product description

The Seed Savers Exchange - Green orach, best harvested when between 6" and 2' tall. Self-sows in the garden. This variety comes from Mark Walker and Kathy Kapitan, seed savers who have been listed on the SSE Yearbook Exchange since 1996. They received this orach from Mark's uncle, Gib Backlund, who obtained it from his father-in-law, George Bly. George's parents, Haldor and Ingeliv (Sekse) Bly, brought the orach to the U.S. when they emigrated from Norway to Minnesota in 1888.
