Perpetual Spinach

50 days. (Beta vulgaris var cicla) Belongs to the same species as chard and beets, but it has distinctive differences. The taste is more like a true spinach than ordinary chard, and the leaves look like spinach too—flatter and more pointed than chard, with slimmer stems. Very longstanding in the garden, yielding from late spring through autumn if planted early. Seldom bolts during its first year.

What are the pros? For me, this beats spinach

What are the cons? none

Review:

This is the second time I have grown this variety. I also grew a red stem variety this year. We liked both, but when this perpetual chard blew the other chard and all the spinach out of the water. It has a very mild flavor, none of the bitterness of other chards. We are using this interchangably in spinach and chard recipes, both cooked and raw. I hope I am never without it!

What are the pros? Non-bolting like Spinach does

What are the cons? None

Review:

I will probably never bother growing spinach again, i.e. too much effort for such a short return. It seems like every P. spinach seed germinated, so next time I won't expect needing to thin. I'm growing in a greenhouse, not outdoors. Despite (or maybe because of) the thick stand, very few pests are hiding within (earwigs, snails, slugs, grubs) as they do in Swiss chard. I like the taste better than chard, which I've been growing in huge quantity for 7 years, 12 months a year. Have yet to see how the P. Spinach comes through winter, but fairly confident it will do fine -- arugula does.

What are the pros? Flavor, yield, pest resistance

What are the cons? none

Review:

This chard grows beautifully, has a mild taste, and resists pests. If I could only grow one leafy green, this would be it. We harvest this chard from the middle of June through November. We had a terrible drought this year and a few plants bolted, but many did not. We used the greens from the bolting plants in cooked dishes and there was no bitterness. This is in my top three favorite garden plants. Everyone should try this.

Review:

I grew perpetual spinach for the first time this year. It grows so quickly and abundantly I can't keep up with it. My only complaint is that I have too much and can't seem to make a dent in it. Even the larger leaves taste good. The taste is very similar to spinach. I haven't had any issues with pests but then I am keeping my garden covered. Will definitely be growing this one again next year.

What are the pros? Tastes very similar to spinach

What are the cons? none

Review:

This has been a solid performer for me. It germinates and grows quickly, tolerates the summer heat, is less bitter than chard, and tastes very much like spinach. The bugs seem to prefer other plants, so it's leaves stay intact and bug free. I love this green! I even use the stalks from the larger leaves in stir fry. I am surprised this veggie hasn't become more popular-it is a great green for summer when most greens give up in the heat.
