Organic Asian Spinach | Tatsoi
HEIRLOOM If you love spinach and have ever struggled to grow it, Asian spinach just might change your life as it did ours. 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 in the Videos Tab!
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!

Tatsoi Spinach is delicious, the best spinach I have ever tasted! I grew this in a 5 gallon grow bag, which I started around April 4th. Fruition Seeds have very high germination rate, so I only planted two seeds so as not to waste them and they both came up. The plant did very well despite our extremely variable temperatures this spring. I harvested the spinach yesterday (May 22) because this past week it suddenly shot up into the upper 80s and it was starting to go to seed. I made a tomato, basil, Tatsoi Spinach and mozzarella salad for lunch and used the leftovers to make a nice whole wheat penne pasta dish. Thanks, Fruition Seeds-Tatsoi will now always have a place in my garden!
