Description
 
Tetragonia tetragonioides An antipodean perennial plant whose leaves were used by Captain Cook on the Endeavour, to fight scurvy. As the leaves contain oxalic acid they should be blanched and rinsed in cold water, before cooking. It does not bolt in hot weather, and it has a high vitamin C content. Sow in spring and plant out after last frost. Seeds can take several weeks to germinate. Average 25 seeds per packet.
