Ratings & Reviews

Warrigal Greens

This grows so well and so easily in my small garden bed in urban inner Sydney. Being a native, it's heat-tolerant and drought-tolerant - beyond seedling stage, I have not watered it at all. I grew it as a heat-tolerant alternative to spinach and it has not disappointed. I give it zero maintenance and it just grows and grows! It does need to be cooked before eating, otherwise it can cause stomach upset.

Warrigal Greens

Warrigal Greens are a fantastic native vegie. They are really easy to grow and the amount of leafy green you get in return for your efforts is fantastic. I frequently use them as a side to a main meal, in quiches and on toast with an egg for breakfast.

So good!

Planted these in my parents' raised garden bed in rural Western Australia (it's quite hot and windy) and it has grown perfectly. We love using Warrigals and can't wait to try making pesto!

Excellent

I was under the impression that this was a difficult seed to germinate, but all eight seeds we started came up and flourished. The leaves are delicious (always blanch first to lower the oxalate concentration) and keep their shape much better than English spinach when cooked. Will definitely be growing this vegetable every year.
