Hybrid variety spinach known for its crinkly-looking leaves and easy to clean. Mandolin spinach has deep green, glossy leaves shaped like paddles. They grow upright and are less crinkly at the baby stage, growing more savoy-like as growth progresses. It is a late season variety, extending its growth into the summer months. This spinach variety is more bolt and disease-resistant and highly recommended for the home gardener. Great for salads, but also well-suited for soups, pasta and a simple sauteed side.
Created from a controlled method of pollination in which the pollen of two different species or varieties is crossed by human intervention. Typical F1 varieties are deliberately created to breed a desired trait. Gardeners who use hybrid plant varieties usually purchase new seed every year, however, over several years the seed could eventually be used for open pollination
