description for "Spinach: Spinacia oleracea 'Catalina'"

Top-quality 'Catalina' spinach is sweet and mellow tasting with nicely shaped, crunchy textured young leaves that are just perfect to harvest at baby size for scrumptious fresh spinach salads. Fast growth and bolt-resistance are bred right into 'Catalina,' and its smooth leaves have a mild, nutty flavor with no metallic overtones. The plants are vigorous, productive and long standing; go right into the garden with your salad bowl to pick the deep green oval leaves at their fresh flavor peak. Either harvest individual outside leaves from well-established plants and let regrow, or harvest entire plants. Keep spinach plants well watered and weeded and fertilize these heavy feeders several times as they leaf out and especially after harvesting outside leaves. Combine well-washed and dried leaves with your favorite garlicky salad dressing; spinach pairs well with hearty dressings like the traditional hot bacon dressing. - edited by dtd pbcouchman
