Spinach - New Zealand
This is not a true Spinach but the leaves resemble Spinach leaves and are produced in abundance on stems a foot or more in length. It will grow during hot weather when other Spinach will not produce. A short row in your garden will furnish nice ‘greens’ all summer.
An Excellent mid-summer crop, the leaves can be cut frequently, as new leaves develop replacing the older lower leaves that are removed.
