This is one of our favorite open-pollinated innovations from Japan. A heat-tolerant spinach that
is mild in salads because of low tannins, has a soft texture, and retains its color when cooked. The
attracitve red-purple stems and leaf veins, make an exciting splash to any dish. In Asia, spinach
is used in soup, cooked with noodles, and in stir-fries, and in India they are pureed with spices in
butter. Plant late spring to early summer.
