description for "Spinach: Spinacia oleracea 'Summer Perfection'"

This wonderful new premier Dutch variety, 'Summer Perfection,' was bred for especially sweet flavor and a long harvest period in the garden. 'Summer Perfection' stands up well to early summer heat with bright green leaves that have a succulent, crunchy texture and extraordinarily clean, sweet flavor you'll love. The upright leaves are easy to harvest and perfect steamed, sauteed or in fresh spinach salad. Plant again for ample fall harvests as 'Summer Perfection' withstands autumn frosts for great cool weather greens. There are two methods for harvesting spinach: either cut the entire plant 1 inch or so above the base once plants are 4 or 5 inches tall, or wait until plants are well established and harvest just the outer leaves, leaving at least 4 center leaves so the plant will continue to grow. Water and fertilize after cutting and plants will provide 2 or 3 pickings before weather gets too warms and spinach begins to go to seed. - edited by dtd pbcouchman
