Spinach, Bloomsdale Long Standing

Glossy, dark green savoyed leaves are sweet, tender, fleshy and have a rich flavor. 

Bloomsdale spinach was introduced around 1826 by the Landreth Seed Company. Bloomsdale was the home and farm of David Landreth on the banks of the Deleware.
Popeye's favorite heirloom variety! Bloomsdale Long Standing is an old standard. It's a large, spreading spinach has dark green, savoyed curled leaves. The yield is good, and it is slow to bolt. For first crop, sow in spring. Plant again in late summer. In mild winter areas, fall plantings yield in early spring. 

Bloomsdale is by far the most popular and widely available open pollinated spinach. 
Quick to come up and quick to harvest for baby spinach leaves.
Bloomsdale spinach stands well in warm weather without bolting.


I have grown this spinach for years. It will bolt in high heat. It is one of my first planets that I set out in the spring. If I harvest early I have no problems. I replant in late summer. It is also one of my last to harvest in the fall. Don't change a thing. Love this.
