Flavor: Healthy earthy taste
Preparation Ideas: Avoid over cooking spinach as their taste can become bitter. Remove from heat as soon as leaves begin to wilt. Add flavoring such as freshly squeezed lemon juice.
Days to Germination: 7 to 21 days
Days to Maturity: 40 to 48 days
Planting Depth: 1.3 cm (1/2″)

Instructions: Plant directly in the garden as soon as ground can be worked and danger of frost has passed. Repeat plantings every two weeks to extend the harvest season of fresh spinach. Best growth occurs in spring and fall, and be sure to do a second sowing in late summer for a fall crop.
Suggestions: Harvest entire plants at the soil line when outer leaves are 6 inches long. Or, just cut away outer leaves as needed for a continuous crop until hot weather. Sow again in the late summer.
