Comment: This isn’t a true spinach, but it grows and tastes much better (it’s an East Asian cultivar that does well in heat and humidity). It has similar texture to spinach with more flavor, and it doesn’t wilt! I grew this plant on a 7” tall squash tunnel and in 6 weeks, it had grown about 20ft total. Very productive crop that has withstood high heat, humidity, and downpours like a champ. This is the star of my garden this year and the spinach salad is incredible.

Comment: I had never heard of this type of spinach. However, since I grow all my veggies in pots and love spinach, it seemed like a perfect match! The plant arrived quickly, in creative packaging, and looked healthy. I think it’s already grown some!

Comment: These spinach plants seem to do really well, even in harsh shipping conditions. For my first shipment it was very hot and there was a UPS glitch. Other plants in order didn't survive (GrowJoy made good on this) but the spinach came through fine. Second order, an unusual cold snap, but the spinach was still fine.

"Perfect purchase"
