Excellent year round!
Reviewed By: W (College Station, TX)
I've been using this variety for years. In TX, plant it in the fall when the weather stays below 85 F -began harvesting it within just a few weeks and continue to harvest from the same plant throughout the following year until it bolts in the late summer. I allow it to go to seed, it reseeds itself, and grows again in the fall. Excellent and easy to grow - low maintenance.

tough growing conditions
Reviewed By: MZC (Las Vegas, NV)
Living in the Mojave, growing a garden can be a challenge. This spinach is the best. It really is slow to bolt, stays sweet all season, and hold up to the cold for fall planting.

Delicious!

I'm growing this spinach right now, in late January, in a cold frame. It's delicious raw or cooked.
