The term spinach may refer to plants from five different families, including English or common spinach (Spinacia oleracea), silverbeet or Swiss chard (Beta vulgaris), French spinach or orach (Atriplex hortensis), New Zealand spinach (Tetragonia expansa), Chinese spinach (Amaranthus gangeticus), water spinach (Ipomoea aquatica) and Indianspinach (Basella rubra).
In New South Wales avocados are grown in the coastal areas north of Gosford with some plantings in the irrigation areas along the lower Murray River. The principal soils are basaltic clay loams on the coast and deep sands at Stuarts Point and on the Murray.
The main cultivar is Hass. It is grafted on seedling rootstocks derived from non-edible avocados of the Mexican or Guatemalan botanical races. Fuerte and Sharwil, once popular varieties, are now on the decline. Lamb Hass, a new variety, is being planted in some areas. Fruit are harvested from April to December.
