Product Description

If you need spinach in a hurry, Alexandra is the spinach for you! It's a fast-growing baby leaf variety with high bolt resistance--meaning it won't prematurely create flowering stems. It has an upright growth habit that is highly desirable for baby leaf varieties. Make succession sowings every 10 days to extend the harvest period for fresh salad use. You won't need sprays to control any pests or disease, but during wet conditions, you may find slugs. In this case we recommend Escar-Go!®, a natural way to control snails and slugs. Alexandra is resistant to Downy Mildew. 20-25 days to maturity.
