SPINACH – PERPETUAL
Perpetual spinach is from the silverbeet family & isn’t really perpetual. It is a perennial variety that has a similar leaf to the annual variety except that the leaves are smoother & it has narrower green stems, plus it grows to 2.5 meters. It will self-seed prolifically if allowed, but a single plant will last in the garden for several years. The plant will shoot back from the base after it has been cut back hard late in summer. This variety has the advantage of not developing bitterness as it ages.
