Looking for a spinach alternative that can stand up to the summer heat? Look no further than New Zealand spinach! This leafy green is perfect for growing in hot weather, and will produce a bountiful crop all season long. The bush-like plants have triangular leaves and produce seeds that are slow to germinate, but it is well worth the wait. New Zealand spinach is a versatile vegetable that can be used in a variety of dishes, so add it to your garden today and enjoy fresh, healthy greens all summer long! 3.5g ~ 50 seed.

Plant seeds directly into the garden after the average last frost date. Optimum soil temperature for seed germination is 50-65 degrees. Sow thickly, then thin to 1 plant every 12". New Zealand spinach thrives in summer heat and will produce all summer long, unlike true spinach. Harvest tender leaves and shoot tips about 3-4” long. This will encourage the plant to branch.

Great seeds but #peppergate

The seeds I have gotten from bucktown over the years have been great. However, this year we fell victim to #peppergate. Our purple beauty's are some small HOT peppers. So that has been a big disappointment for this year. Hopefully next year's pepper seeds are more reliable.

Thank you for taking the time to leave us a review Sarah, we appreciate your feedback. We're disappointed to hear that your Purple Beauty peppers did not grow as you expected.
