|search engine by freefind|
This plant is a very popular vegetable known as Spinach. Its tender, dark green leaves are great in salads and cooked. Described below is the common garden Spinach (S. oleracea). There are two other plants often grown in place of Spinach. These are Malabar Spinach and New Zealand Spinach (Basella Alba and Tetragonia tetragonioides,respectively).
Spinach grows quickly and loves cool weather. This annual forms clumps of long-stemmed leaves that can grow up to 12 inches long and 18 inches wide at maturity, but Spinach is usually harvested earlier. The main differences among Spinach hybrids and open-pollinated varieties are in their resistance to bolting and diseases, leaf texture and how fast they mature.
