Perpetual Spinach

(Beta vulgaris var cicla) 50 days. 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.

You cut it, and a week later it comes back beautifully. We have had many delicious meals with this. Easy to grow even in small spaces.

What are the pros? Great spinach substitute

What are the cons? none

Review:

As others have already mentioned this is an outstanding spinach substitute for growing throughout the summer, in fact it is hard for me to tell much difference in flavor and since spinach bolts so quickly when planted in late winter/spring this will be the only "spinach" I will plant from now on at that time of year. The plants are also much more productive than true spinach lasting a very long time as a cut and come again crop, leaves also grow larger. While I like and grow true swiss chard, perpetual spinach is different from other chards in flavor and it cooks down just like spinach. It is strange to me that this plant is not more popular among gardeners.

What are the pros? Heat tleratant

Review:

I planted this Swiss chard underneath my okra in the shade of the okra leaves. The shade had no bearing on this very bountiful tasty Swiss chard. I planted in April and had “spinach” spring, summer and fall!

What are the pros? Spinach like but doesn't bolt

What are the cons? Nothing

Review:

I like salads but hate wasting garden space on greens that bolt like regular spinach and lettuces. This variety has a nearly identical flavor and texture to spinach, but doesn't bolt and in fact does very well in hot weather. It is great either cooked or raw, freezes well, and can be used as swiss chard or spinach. It is easy to grow and you get quick harvests. I cut the whole plant about 3 inches from the ground and let it grow back. No need for succession plantings, after a couple weeks (or less) it will be ready to harvest again. This is one of my must haves for my homestead.
