New Zealand Spinach

Love spinach, but not a fan of it bolting and getting bitter? The New Zealand Spinach will grow in the summer without bolting—and its thick, fleshy leaves stay tasty. Not a true spinach, New Zealand is just as healthy and full of vitamin C. It can be used in salads and recipes—and it also makes an attractive border plant. Often perennializes, coming back year after year. 60 DAYS.
