Spinach – Early Prickly Seeded (Organic)

£2.00

A very hardy and fast-growing variety of spinach with smooth triangular leaves, ideal for an early or late harvest. Mentioned as early as the 13th century in Germany, the prickly seed lives up to its name producing a smooth leaf which is very pointy and triangular in shape. It has long been known as one of the hardiest varieties of spinach and as such is recommended for overwintering. It is ideal for an early crop in spring, or as autumn greens from a late summer sowing. It’s fast growing, prolific and bolts slower than other varieties.

Spinach tips: For summer varieties of spinach sow in late spring, and protect with fleece if there is danger of frost. For winter varieties sow at the end of the summer.
