Warrigal Greens

This leafy green is also known as New Zealand spinach and also Botany Bay greens and is one of few commercially available Australian native food plants.

Many Australians now would consider them only weeds yet they were an integral part to the Indigenous Australian diet and also in keeping our early settlers healthy!

Like other leafy vegetables, warrigal greens are full of vitamins. Captain Cook was known to encourage his men to eat them to prevent scurvy and it was even enjoyed in England for a time after Sir Joseph Banks brought back the seeds from early expeditions.
