Spinach 'Bloomsdale' (Organic)
Introduced to American gardeners way back in 1826 this heirloom variety has thick, savoy (crinkled) bright green leaves that are rich in antioxidants and vitamins on a compact plant. It maintains a neat rosette of leaves for some time as it is resistant to bolting.
Spinach appreciates being sown after peas or beans for the most delicately flavoured leaves. Partial shade in hot weather can extend the harvest period by discouraging it from bolting.
