70 days. This beautiful plant is not a true spinach but a different species (basella rubra). This heat-loving Asian vine has lovely red stems and delicious, succulent leaves that are great in salads and stir-fries. A delicious green that can be grown as an annual in many areas or as a perennial in sub-tropical areas.

What are the pros? bug free/delicious leaves

Review:

I recommend this vine to anyone. If you just need shade on a patio and don't like eating greens. leaves are tasty raw and cooked. Very nutritious. Loves heat and humidity. We are growing it on a trellis in a raised bed with rich potting soil next to our deck.

What are the pros? Strong vine, Pest Free

What are the cons? Low germination

Review:

Tried this spinach as a heat loving alternative, as my regular spinach always bolted too soon. First time I tried growing in our heavier clay soils had zero germination, but this year, in rich composted soil in raised beds, half germinated when temps got to the 80s in summer, then grew very very quickly to climb up alongside my bean trellises..highest production right now in late summer/early fall...I can pick leaves every other day and new ones quickly sprout! Very productive. Taste is not the best raw, not at all like spinach, but used in saut?ed greens mixes or my homemade sprout crackers, works great. Thick rubbery leaves that were pest free and only very mildly bothered by signs of disease.

Review:

I ORIGINALLY PURCHASED THIS PLANT SEED AS A HOPEFUL SOLUTION TO OUR YEAR AROUND WARM WEATHER AND MY NEED FOR A LOT OF EXPENSIVE GROCERY STORE ORGANIC SPINACH FOR MY SMOOTHIES. WOW, THIS WAS EASY TO GROW. IT BOLTED UP OUT OF THE POTTING MIX... STONG AND HEALTHY PLANTS. I ALSO PROPAGAGED SOME FROM A LOCALLY PURCHASED BAG OF GREENS. THAT WAS SUPER EASY ALSO. THIS SPINACH IS GREAT FOR THE SPINACH FACOR IN MY MORNING GREEN DRINKS AND I HAVE ENJOYED ITS MILD TASTE RIGHT OFF THE VINE. I WILL BE TRYING IT IN MY SALADS NEXT AND FULLY EXPECT IT TO CONTINUE TO BE A WINNING FLAVOR ADDITION.. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!!!! ALSO HIGHLY RECOMMEND THIS SEED COMPANY!! THANKS FOR HAVING THIS GREAT PRODUCT

Review:

I planted this spinach as a transplant in early spring last year and we had an unusual amount of rain combined with our clay soils the plants failed to thrive and eventually drown. I didn't think much about them again. Tilled everything under in the fall and again this spring and then I was very surprised to see them come up as volunteer plants! They climbed up my tomato cages and produced beautifully all summer. Very unique texture for spinach but delicious.
