Spinach, Popeye (40-50 days)

Spinacia oleracea

This is a farm bred original created by combining the best traits of a variety of savoy leaved spinaches into an open pollinated, interbreeding population (aka “Grex”). Leaf color is very dark green with a wrinkled savoyed shape that really adds loft to raw salads. In our trials last summer this variety bolted a good 2 weeks later than a similar variety grown in the cooler summer climate of Washington. A wonderful glimpse into the benefits of imparting bioregional adaptation through on-farm selection and breeding.
