Spinach - New Zealand
60 days. Heirloom from England dating back to the late 1700”s. Not a true spinach but will produce a spinach-like crop in hot weather when true spinach will not. Because of its heat tolerance and resistance to bolting to seed, this is an excellent summer substitute for conventional spinach. The attractive plants have a bush-like habit and produce distinctive triangular leaves. Use the succulent leaves and young stems fresh in salads or cooked. Grows as a perennial in mild winter areas. May be difficult to start and have low germination rates. The federal minimum standard is 40%. Soaking seeds in warm water for two to eight hours prior to sowing may help soften the seed coat and improve germination results. Additionally, it can take a couple of weeks for germination to occur (depending on weather). Keep soil moist until germination occurs.  PKT (50) $2
