Wonderful and prolific spinach cultivar. Grows with very little attention. Taste great, less filling. Planted on March 20, served a little over a month later at dinnertime.
Distributed spinach throughout the neighborhood, one man remarked the spinach is beautiful. Seeds were purchased at Walmart for about $.25 package, sowed three packs. Not bad for 75 cents. Enjoy!

A dark green smooth leaf type quite popular in this area as it is distributed by Bonnie Plants. I consider it an annual, grown in the early spring and again in the fall.
