60 days. Tetragonia tetragonoides. Open Pollinated. The plant produces excellent yields of very flavorful medium green spinach leaves. It is not a true spinach but the leaves taste similar to spinach and some think it tastes better than spinach. It produces small, thick, tender, dark green triangular leaves. The more you cut them, the more they will produce. This variety produces continuously all year, from spring to fall. Unlike regular spinach, it thrives in hot summers and can tolerate droughts. An excellent choice for home gardens. An heirloom introduced into England in 1772. United States Department of Agriculture, PI 597641.

Spinach Seed Planting Information:

Spinach is a curly leaf plant and used fresh of cooked like a green. Spinach does not do well in very hot weather. It will stop producing leaves when during the hot summer days. You can have successive plantings throughout the year by planting every three weeks. Spinach seeds are usually planted directly in the garden. In the spring, plant seeds 4 to 6 weeks before last frost date. Plant in August for fall harvest. Plants grow 3 - 8" tall.

Soil Requirements:

Requires fertile soil in a well drained location in the garden. Apply much and grass clippings, or straw around base of plant.

Water Requirements:

Keep soil consistently moist. Water well during dry and hot spells. Water in the morning only, on the side of the plants and not directly on the leaves.

Fertilizer Requirements:

Use RootBlast, Vegetable Alive, and Slow Release Fertilizer when transplanting outdoors. Apply Miracle Gro periodically.

Harvest Tips:

You can cut outer leaves as you need them if you want the plant to produce more leaves, or you can cut the entire plant at ground level.
