This is not a true Spinach but the leaves resemble Spinach leaves and are produced in abundance on stems a foot or more in length. It will grow during hot weather when other Spinach will not produce. A short row in your garden will furnish nice “greens” all summer.

SOWING…Plant seed outdoors as soon as the danger of frost is past. Plant in rows 2 feet apart, spacing seeds 2 inches apart in the row. Cover seed with ½ inch of fine soil, well pressed down. Keep soil moist until seeds start to grow.

THINNING…When plants are 1 to 2 inches tall, thin or transplant spacing plants 6 to 8 inches apart.

GERMINATION…New Zealand spinach is very slow to germinate taking 2 to 3 weeks.

REMARKS…An excellent mid-summer crop, the leaves can be cut frequently, as new leaves develop replacing the older lower leaves that are removed.
