HEIRLOOM If you love spinach and have ever struggled to grow it, Asian spinach just might change your life as it did mine. Asian spinach is so similar to spinach in both mild mineral flavor and buttery-crisp texture and Friends, she is SO much easier to grow. Her green spoon-shaped leaves and succulent stems we use exactly the same, fresh and cooked, as we do classic spinach. Enjoy our Asian spinach video below :)

If you love spinach and have ever struggled to grow it, Asian spinach just might change your life as it did mine.

So here's the thing: Asian spinach thrives in all seasons, germinating quickly in April and August alike. Classic spinach only thrives in the cool, moist spring and fall, refusing to germinate and then instantly bolting in the summer heat. For us here in the Finger Lakes, Zone 5, if you're tempted to sow classic spinach after Memorial Day, you are best served just waiting to sow 'til early September.

Similar to classic spinach, Asian spinach is exceptionally cold-tolerant and often overwinters under cold frames and row cover. As I write in late January, we're about to share some fresh-picked from the field for supper.

Hope you will one day, too!

I think this would be a better spring planting than a fall planting. Tasty greens though! Great in stir fry or salads!
