Fast service - good product

I ordered seeds from 5 different websites on the same day. The shipping prices were all similar. This company's product came two days before anyone else. One company has yet to ship my order and has not responded top my inquiry. The seeds germinated in 6 days as predicted. I have had dud seeds from other companies. You have my future business.

no bolt spinach
Nancy Koernke from MI wrote on June 13, 2019

I love this spinach!!! When my spring crop is spinach is done and too warm to plant more without it bolting. This spinach starts to germinate going the distance till frost. The more you pick the more it produces. Plus you can take cuttings and make more plants. Makes a great house plant. Good for winter crop right in your kitchen.

Fantastic producer and tasty!

I bought some Malabar spinach plants last year, but I see that Park Seed has seeds; better yet. Buy them! This climbing spinach is a fantastic producer. It's actually not a spinach; but tastes like spinach, and can be used in many dishes, just as you would other spinach varieties. It is a little slimy, but once you get past the fact that it far out-produces any other spinach, you're golden. I grew four Malabar spinach plants this year in Tennessee and had enough to eat it daily in omelets, or for dinner. There was enough to harvest, cook, and freeze for winter, as well as dehydrate for soups. Malabar spinach is high protein and great source of phosphorus and potassium. It's an excellent source of iron, calcium, Vitamin C and Vitamin A.

This is so... easy

In the Pee Dee region of SC this reseeds for years. It is very easy care. Give it something to climb on and it does the rest. We freeze it and eat it fresh. It grows with no pest problems which is quite a blessing in this area. The taste is very much like spinach. The leaves are a little meaty. No need to clean and clean like standard spinach. It grows on a vine. Grows all summer long. This year I am harvesting well into November since there has not been a killing frost yet.
