“A farm original and the first out-of-the-closet, open pollinated “red” spinach on the market. Beaujolais is a striking magenta-red veined spinach that is just beautiful in a salad mix or on its own. Its veins glow much in the way baby chards do but with a milder and sweeter flavor. Buttery tenderness at baby leaf stage when it should be cut. The red spinaches are not well suited to growing for bunching size as they have a tendency to bolt earlier than standard types. 30 days baby leaf.”
