"New Zealand" Spinach Seeds

Though many herbivores prefer its taste to other spinach varieties, truth be told that New Zealand Spinach is not really a proper spinach at all. It looks and tastes similar to its namesake, but technically its botanical classification is a little different. Nonetheless, this tasty and fascinating heirloom veggie has been grown since the 1770's after being initially introduced by famed British botanist Sir Joseph Banks, who collected it on his journey to the South Seas with Captain James Cook. New Zealand Spinach is particularly noted for its extremely high vitamin content.

How to Grow New Zealand Spinach

When to plant Spinach Seeds

Spinach is a cold-hardy, tender-leafed crop. Direct sow in early Spring, as soon as the soil can be properly worked. For a Fall harvest, plant again in late Summer, ensuring that soil temperatures are cool enough.

Where to Plant Spinach Seeds

Plant your Spinach in a sunny location, in average, well-draining soil.

How to plant Spinach Seeds

Sow about 12 seeds per foot in a row, or sprinkle over a wide row or bed. Sow seeds ½ inch deep, compress gently into soil, and water lightly. Seedlings emerge in about 7-14 days, depending on conditions. Soil should stay below 70º F for good germination. When seedlings are about 1 - 2 inches tall, thin them to be about 4 - 6 inches apart. Please note, do not thin baby spinach.

How to harvest Spinach

Harvest once the outer leaves reach 3 inches in length, your to your desired size.

*You can harvest the whole plant all at once and cut at the base, or leaves can be picked off one layer at a time.

*Keep plants well-watered during dry periods to help promote growth. Plants need about 1 inch of rain per week during the growing season. If watering with overhead sprinklers, water early in the day so the foliage has time to dry off before evening, to minimize disease problems.
