A slow-bolting smooth leaf spinach. These forest green leaves are an excellent source of fibre and vitamins A and C. Rounded leaves are heavy but tender and succulent.

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.
