We suggest regularly picking the outer leaves to maximize each plant's productivity and promote ongoing growth. Thriving in winter, this leafy green, packed with iron, adds a wonderfully nutritious touch to hearty winter dishes. It's ideal for vibrant salads and microgreens when young, reminiscent of spinach.

As it matures, it develops robustness and a subtle hint of bitterness. Whether enjoyed fresh in salads or briefly blanched in boiling water, this English variety offers a delightful culinary experience. Anticipate a peak harvest in just 55 days.

Spinach Leaves:

  1. Flavor: Spinach has a milder, more neutral taste compared to sorrel. It is versatile and pairs well with various ingredients.
  2. Appearance: Spinach leaves are typically dark green and have a broad, rounded shape with a smoother texture compared to sorrel.
  3. Nutritional Content: Spinach is an excellent source of vitamins A and K, as well as folate, iron, and calcium. It is known for promoting heart health and supporting bone health.

Usage:
