Product Description

Due to its high bolt resistance (meaning it won't prematurely create flowering stems), and resistance to nine different strains of Downy Mildew, Olympia is a great choice for areas with high humidity, which can make Downy Mildew a serious problem. Its semi-upright habit makes it ideal as either a baby leaf (cut just 3 weeks from sowing seed), or as mature spinach. You won't need sprays to control any pests or disease, but if you do plant in high-humidity environments, you may find slugs. In this case, we recommend Escar-Go!®, a natural way to control snails and slugs. 45-50 days from seed to harvest.
