Avon is a fast growing hybrid spinach with attractive dark green savoyed leaves on an upright growing plant. The succulent tasty leaves are perfect as baby greens or as a home garden specialty. Due to its heat tolerance and resistance to bolting, Avon is an excellent choice for early spring/late summer crop.

How To Grow
Sow seed 12 mm (1/2") deep and 2.5 cm (1") apart in rows 30-45 cm (12- 18") apart as soon as the soil can be worked in the spring and every two weeks after that until late spring. Thin to 5-7.5 cm (2-3") after germination - this is the secret to the best crops. Sow again in mid to late August for fall crops. Top-dress with compost, after seedlings are well established.
