Heritage Spinach - Bloomsdale Long Standing
Originally from Asia, the Bloomsdale variety was introduced to the American gardener in the early 1900's and has remained the most popular spinach ever since. Tender dark green crinkled leaves with rich flavor produce over a long period.
This spinach produces dark-green, deeply savoyed (crumpled) leaves which are tender and delicious. It resists bolting (forming seed stalks) longer than most spinach. Used fresh in salads as well as cooked.
