50 days. (Beta vulgaris var cicla) Belongs to the same species as chard and beets, but it has distinctive differences. The taste is more like a true spinach than ordinary chard, and the leaves look like spinach too—flatter and more pointed than chard, with slimmer stems. Very longstanding in the garden, yielding from late spring through autumn if planted early. Seldom bolts during its first year.

What are the pros? Tastes very similar to spinach

What are the cons? none

Review:

This has been a solid performer for me. It germinates and grows quickly, tolerates the summer heat, is less bitter than chard, and tastes very much like spinach. The bugs seem to prefer other plants, so it's leaves stay intact and bug free. I love this green! I even use the stalks from the larger leaves in stir fry. I am surprised this veggie hasn't become more popular-it is a great green for summer when most greens give up in the heat.

germinates well. long season. very nice spinach taste. tender. does eventually succumb to nematodes. Grows well in my very wet area with constant rain, temperatures in the 70's & low 80's.

What are the pros? Easy, Long harvest

What are the cons? not a true spinach

Review:

I love this little chard! I've planted it extremely early for an early harvest in our cold climate and with a plastic cover (just throw heavy plastic on the ground over it) can continue harvesting it into winter or until it is gone. January 2015 I peeked under my plastic cover to harvest nearby and saw that Perpetual Spinach has re-seeded itself, sprouted and plans to give me a nice crop again this early spring!

Review:

We really like spinach. Our summers are long, hot and usually dry. We grow swiss chard to saute and add to stir fry and other cooked dishes, but love this type for raw use. A small stand of it can produce for months during both hot and cool weather. Added to salads or sandwiches, it takes very much like spinach. I grow some spinach in the covered winter gardens, but this is the summer substitute that works for us. During the summer, I don't have time to deal with fussy plants and this one isn't the least bit fussy.

Review:

This is the best garden crop ever, if you like spinach. It doesn't bolt like the small-leaf spinach. It comes back in spring, while your new seeds are coming up. You can cut and cut it and it just keeps growing. Perfect for smoothies, salads, etc. You can pick leaves when small or large. You can cut out the stems and chop them for a 'different' vegetable. Easy, easy, easy. Makes my garden look beautifully green all year!
