With brilliant burgundy stems & incredible, sweet succulence, Beaujolais quickly became one of our favorite vegetables to eat. All spinach grows best in cool temperatures and Beaujolais is no exception. Though it tends to bolt quicker than classic green spinach, leaves are still tender when they are over a foot long before they finally send their seed stalk high. Sow Beaujolais along with your peas first thing in Spring & you’ll enjoy 6 to 8 weeks of spinach before the heat of summer comes; sown in September you’ll be eating well through the Holidays. We are grateful for our friends at Uprising Seeds for developing this extraordinary variety and sharing it with us.
