(Tetragonia tetragonioides) 60 days. Not the same species as common spinach, this variety takes the heat and keeps producing all summer. Tasty. Was listed by Fearing Burr in 1863 in his book Field and Garden Vegetables of America. Not frost hardy.

What are the pros? Great spinahce that climbs

What are the cons? likes rich soil

Review:

Great Spinache that does well if taken care of. Needs afternoon shade in the deep south/FL/TX and likes semi wet feet. I imagine this thing is stellar up north and on the west coast if grown with the right mix of light and what not. I would think you could grow this with pole beans but didn't like my dry pole bean growing trellis this year but is growing exceptionally well with tomatoes right now of all things. Tastes pretty much like spinache. I need to grow a lot though so you can cook it because it cooks down so easily even steaming.

Review:

This is an excellent spinach (substitute) if you live where the climate swings can be rather drastic. It pops out fairly early, and is both heat and cold tolerant. It lasts after first frost and can withstand drought conditions (or having its "feet wet" for prolonged periods of time). It self-seeds if you allow, but doesn't overpopulate. With care, if you have too many plants in the spring you can remove them and transplant or give to a friend. I really have nothing bad to say about this stuff. I wish everything I grew in the garden was this easy to start and care for. It's literally something you plant and forget until you want some. Oh, and it also keeps well, for a fresh green. Simply rinse and put in a ziplock in the fridge, or give it away. Definitely recommend this to others!

What are the pros? Grows well all season

What are the cons? Will take over adjacent spaces

Review:

I used transplanted seedlings and also directly sowed the seeds and had pretty much the same effect. Plants grow in vine-like stems with large leaves. Simply cut the stem and trim the leaves into your basket. Plants grew well all season right up to the first hard frost in the fall. Excellent production. Just make sure you have good loose soil with plenty of nutrients.

What are the pros? Grows vigorously all summer

What are the cons? None really

Review:

Very quick growing long yielding plant. Taste is good but I still slightly prefer traditional spinach varieties. As a hot weather spinach I've not found a better performer. A couple of plants were more then enough.

What are the pros? Easy, disease-pest resistant.

What are the cons? None

Review:

This is the easiest plant to care for in my vegetable garden. I have harvested from a single plant for 21 months with periodic feedings of homemade organic compost. Perennial in mild winters where <32*F nights are not persistent, survives 110*F summers though a bit of shade in the scorching afternoons is appreciated, and disease and pest resistant. I use the SFG method in raised beds and it sprawls into neighboring squares and over the edge of the bed. So, allow plenty of room and keep it trimmed. Great for cut-and-grow or single leaf harvests. I would plant in a corner square, a separate large pot or a hill like squash, with the soil covered with straw or wood chip mulch to keep the leaves clean. Taste-wise, it tastes like spinach. Nutritionally, it is near identical to regular spinach, but without the sliminess of Malabar "spinach." Same nutritional caution as spinach for some individuals.
