Bloomsdale Longstanding Spinach

Early to Harvest, Slow to Bolt

A long-time garden favorite, Bloomsdale Long Standing Spinach has thick, crinkly, dark green leaves that are packed full of flavor. They're tasty eaten fresh, cooked, canned and in soups. Semi-upright plants have a fast growth rate and handle hot weather better than some other spinach varieties. For best results, sow spinach seed as soon as the ground can be worked in the spring, or in the late summer for a fall harvest. To lengthen the harvest period, plant successively. 42 DAYS.
