Aztec Red Spinach or Huauzontle has few equals as a summer spinach crop as heat only produces a larger crop of leaves.
Found in archeological digs of Natives of the New World all the way from the Aztecs of tropical Central America, north and east into the southern Appalachian cave-sheltering tribes.
Lower leaves turn bright red as they mature and hold their color in cooking (only 30-60 seconds in boiling water). Seed-heads can be stir-fried and the seeds can be used for red tortillas or sprouts (red sprouts!)
