Please consider these terms before ordering live plants:
Most plants will be 3”-7” in height. Plants will ship as available after the first of March to the end of
May. We will try to ship orders to southern zones first. No guaranteed exact delivery dates. Plants may
arrive too early and have to be kept inside until the weather warms. Plants may arrive late, as well.

Review:

I got my 2 cuttings last spring and it's been nothing short of off to the races. Within a month I was eating tips and at least 6 full sized leaves, daily. Within two months I had potted another half dozen plants, still eating a nice bunch daily. I've finally had to stop making cuttings.. who am I kidding, I already have 6 cuttings on my kitchen sill. The taste is fantastic. I took a small plant I had been growing for a friend that's been out of town. I told her the more you pick & pinch it off, the faster it grows. She immediately plucked a leaf and ate it. I heard the crunch and she exclaimed, it's really good! My sentiments exactly.

Review:

grows super well in the shade and in sandy South Florida soil. My husband didn't believe you could grow cutting just sticking them into the soil but you truly can! I like to eat it more than my family. i think if i hadn't called it spinach they would have eaten it with out a fuss.

Review:

Received my two small plants last Spring. One little branch broke off of one, so put it in soil when I transplanted them into garden. Ignored it, and later realized I had three plants. This is super easy to grow. I started numerous cuttings, giving away several plants, while still having 8 nice-sized plants in my front landscape beds, 4 larger full-sized plants in large pots, a few more in small pots, & 2 vases of cuttings rooting inside - all from my initial purchase of the two plants! Providing shade from the hot Texas afternoon sun and giving ample water did greatly aid the plants. Even growing these in nearly full shade didn't faze these guys at all. The taste is a bit different from what I was used to in greens, but the flavor quickly grew on me. It became a habit to eat 5-10 growing tips most days while I was out watering and doing garden chores. I brought most plants inside before 1st frost to over-winter, & I'm now ready to put them out after last frost next month.

What are the pros? THRIVED in Texas heat

Review:

I grew these in rectangular pots by our back door so they would be easy to get to when making our green smoothie drinks and salads. Our son's puppy, who didn't know boundaries very well, trampled them down in the planters and these plants STILL grew and thrived and gave SUCH a beautiful and bountiful produce! It thrived on the hot side of the house. Made delicious green smoothie drinks (coupled with apple or blackberries, cucumber, ginger & lemon) for a nutritious snack; and also goes nicely in salads. I'm ordering them every year, now!

What are the pros? Excellent healthy plants

What are the cons? we love this plant

Review:

We bought a pair of these plants two years ago. One is planted in a large pot - and gets moved outdoors during the summer months - and the other is permanently planted in a raised bed inside our heated greenhouse - zone 5 US. The plants are extremely productive and delicious. We get enough greens for two people and have plenty left over for a family up the road. The taste is delicious. We've eaten Longevity Spinach raw and cooked in various ways and it never disappoints. We highly recommend this plant to everyone.
