Love spinach? Grow the flavor all summer long with New Zealand Spinach…
While not the same species as true common spinach, this variety is a delicious substitute that will produce all summer long in the heat! Plant in full sun and keep well hydrated. It’s tasty and will not bolt or turn bitter.
New Zealand Spinach can be grown as a perennial in warmer climates, but it is not frost hardy. It’s easy to grow and quite prolific, but takes a little longer than true spinach to get started so be patient at first.
Cooks up well, like true spinach, and stores easily in the refrigerator.
Excellent for container gardening also!
