There are several different types of spinach, and they can be distinguished by their leaves; savoy are curly, flat leaves (which includes baby spinach), and semi-savoy has slightly crinkled leaves. Spinach dates back to ancient Persia (now known as Iran), was brought to China in the 7th century, and then spread to Europe around the 12th Century.

These nutritious leaves weren’t introduced to the US until 1806, and didn’t become popular until the 1930’s, when Popeye’s popularity gave a 33% boost to sales during the depression years.

Spinach is one of the most popular vegetables in the US, and recipes including spinach often contain the name “Florentine”.  Catherine de Medici just adored spinach and since she was from Florence, Italy, the name “Florentine” just stuck.

Spinach quickly loses nutritional value, so it should be eaten as soon as possible after harvesting.  The nutritious leaves are a mild diuretic and laxative, and helps keep eyes healthy, prevents cancer and reduces blood pressure. Spinach is high in insoluble fiber, packed with vitamins A, B6 and B9, E, C, K1, folic acid, calcium and iron, and contains potassium and magnesium. It is most nutritious eaten raw; however, spinach is so versatile it can be cooked and added to virtually any food, including omelets, soups, dips, salads, pizza, pasta, seafood, chicken and beef.

St. Clare’s heirloom spinach seeds should be planted in the cooler months of Spring and Fall, and most like sandy, moist soil.  It’s time to enhance your garden and your health, order your spinach seeds today!

St. Clare Heirloom Seeds are proud signers of The Safe Seed Pledge: “Agriculture and seeds provide the basis upon which our lives depend. We must protect this foundation as a safe and genetically stable source for future generations. For the benefit of all farmers, gardeners and consumers who want an alternative, We pledge that we do not knowingly buy or sell genetically engineered seeds or plants. The mechanical transfer of genetic material outside of natural reproductive methods and between genera, families or kingdoms, poses great biological risks as well as economic, political, and cultural threats. We feel that genetically engineered varieties have been insufficiently tested prior to public release. More research and testing is necessary to further assess the potential risks of genetically engineered seeds. Further, we wish to support agricultural progress that leads to healthier soils, genetically diverse agricultural ecosystems and ultimately healthy people and communities.” ×
