A productive perpetual spinach variety with narrow, light green stalks.
Beta vulgaris Cicla Group
A perpetual spinach producing broad leaves with narrow, pale green stalks. The leaves can be harvested as baby leaves, when they are very tender, or allowed to grow to full size, when they should be cooked like any spinach. Harvesting should always be under a cut-and-grow-again system so the leaves will regrow ready for another harvest when big enough.
Botanically the plants are biennial, and so are actually not ‘perpetual’ as they will go to seed in their second year. It is the cold in winter that triggers the bolting response, so do not sow seed too early in the spring as an unseasonaly cold period could cause the plants to bolt a year early.
