50 days. The old standard since 1925, does better in hot weather than most. Glossy, deep green, delicious leaves. So popular with fine chefs.

Review:

I planted a patch last fall, and transplanted more starts out this March. The fall patch stayed green through rain, nearly two feet of snow and temps down in the high 20s (F). The spring patch was planted pretty early, but didn't suffer at all from the cool soil. Now that we're warming up, we're getting a couple harvests a week of really tasty greens. Really nice variety.

Review:

Have been growing spinach for over 40 years. Started with Bloomsdale Long Standing. Over the years have tried other varieties but Bloomsdale has always done far better. The best time to plant Bloomsdale is in very early spring which in my area (just north of Baltimore) is early to middle of March. Even planting in February doers well. I have also planted in late summer for a fall crop but that only provided a token crop. Sometimes it wintered over for a very early spring crop but I would not recommend it for a dependable crop with a nice yield. It does bolt (goes to seed) as the temperatures heat up In middle of May it will start to bolt. When that happens the leaves become bitter and lose their sweet flavor. With all the emphasis placed on LONG LASTING , DOES NOT BOLT as fast as others I had expected a great crop into late June. Forget that! Just grow a lot in the early spring and freeze what you don't eat.

What are the pros? Taste, easy to grow

What are the cons? Bolts but that's normal

Review:

The leaves can grow very large and are very tasty - it's always the first thing we bring in from the garden. We use spinach mostly in Indian dishes but they are good in salad too. Like other spinach, they bolt readily in heat. We've grown this variety for years without issue - keep them weeded and they will perform.

Review:

I’m growing this spinach for the first time in 2018, and I am already so impressed that I’m buying more. I mass-planted this in raised beds at the beginning of March. It’s the beginning of May now and I’m already harvesting beautiful spinach for salads. It germinated perfectly, I don’t think a single seed failed. They need consistent water until they are established. I hand water my spinach patch with a watering can every 2-3 days unless it rains. We had a wet April with back to back storms, so I didn’t need to water the spinach at all for three weeks. If you are doing “square foot” gardening, ignore the spacing instructions. I planted about 100 seeds in 4 square feet. It’s now a thick, luscious carpet of dark leaves. I can pick enough leaves for salads without worrying about harvesting whole plants. I have planted more in other areas already so I can put the “Long Standing” to the test. It’s already consistently in the 80s here so this summer will certainly be warm.

Review:

This is a garden staple, one of the first delicious 'fruits' of our labor each year. The first and last thing I plant in my garden every year! Cold hardy surviving frost & light snows in both April & November. I pick one or two leaves off each plant each week for salads, some years leaves are bigger than my hand! Super easy to grow, nice smooth flavor, and if you shade them with carrots, tomatoes or other tall plants they will last longer before bolting in the heat. The leaves turn pointy instead of round and the taste goes bitter when it's too hot for them. Then let them go to seed and save for replanting! In 8 years I've never had an issue with bugs or mildew or anything with this spinach! A friend to the novice and the experienced gardener alike!
