This New Zealand variety produces leaves all summer long without bolting. Its thicker leaves are smaller than those of other varieties.
PLANTING TIME: May be planted as soon as the soil can be worked and again at the end of August or beginning of September for fall crops. SOIL: Well-drained and highly fertile soil. SPACING: Space rows 60 cm apart with seed 2 cm deep. GROWING TIPS: Enrich soil with high nitrogen organic matter. Full sun. Tolerates light shade. HARVEST: Cut young terminal shoots about 15 to 20 cm long; this encourages further shoots to develop over several weeks. Eat leaves within two days of picking or refrigerate them for a few days. Good source of iron and vitamins.
