What are the pros? Easy to grow, come up quick

What are the cons? Tough felt like texture

Review:

I live in Ontario, zone 5b and found this plant easy enough to grow however, the yield isn't great for the amount of space used. The leaves are thick and have a felt like texture. I could see using this to put on a dish to look nice but making a salad out of it wasn't appealing to me. I won't grow it next year.

What are the pros? none

What are the cons? Didn't germinate for me

Review:

I knew this would take 2-3 week to germinate, but it's been 3 weeks, and not sign of anything. However, the conditions have been rough - very hot and dry. Next time, I'll try to start it indoors where I can control conditions better.

What are the pros? the taste, juiciness,

What are the cons? slow to germinate

Review:

I live in zone 5b (Ontario). I decided to try this, because I LOVE spinach, but it refuses to grow for me! This plant is QUITE slow to germinate, to the point where I was about to re-seed the area....It does grow a little slowly at first, but then takes off! long vines of many, many leaves. I used it sparingly, because of another commenter's post about it being high in oxalic acid (worried about getting gout)... But I didn't have problems with gout while eating this... I didn't find it bitter like others say, but it does have a slightly stronger flavor than spinach, if you plan on eating it raw. LOVE this plant, and am so happy to be able to grow it again this season!

What are the pros? great grower

What are the cons? thick leaves

Review:

Great spinach when small. Leaves are very thick. These plants sprouted easily and grew to cover more than 2 rows in the garden (5 foot wide!). Great grower, but I'll be trying some other varieties as the thick leaves were sometimes difficult to work with in salads and other things.
