Palco Spinach (Organic F1 Hybrid 38 Days)

Size

We suggest organic Acadia Spinach as a replacement

 

It is very difficult to find spinach adaptable enough to tolerate hot weather but this variety fits the bill. A quick grower with beautiful spoon-shaped leaves that is both bolt resistant and resistant to downy mildew. We found it to be the best growing spinach in our trials this summer. Tasty full-sized or baby. Harvest the baby leaves to encourage more new growth. The last one to bolt in the heat and remained appetizing. Resistance to downy mildew.

Palco Spinach (Organic F1 Hybrid 38 Days)

PLANTING

Spinacia oleracea

Germination: 7-14 days

Germination Temperature: Optimum soil temperatures 50-70ºF

Seed Sowing Depth: 1/2" deep

Sowing Indoors: 3-4 weeks before planting out in early to mid-spring. Provide 50-65ºF soil temperature. Sow 2-3 seeds per cell/pot. Sowing into individual biodegradable peat/cow pots reduces root damage when transplanting. Transplant after last frost, 6-12" apart.

Sowing Outdoors: Start in early spring when the soil temperature is over 50ºF. Sow a few seeds every 1-3", thin to 6-12" for full-sized plants. Sow heavy seeded rows, 30 seeds per foot, every 10-14 days for baby greens using the Pinetree spinach mix or larger 1000 seed packet. Sow in mid to late summer for fall harvests.

How much does a packet plant: Small packet= 6-10 feet, large packet = 80-100 feet for mature plants or 20-25 feet for baby greens 

Harvest: Starting with baby greens at 3” or the entire plant before it bolts.

Tips: Plant in fertile soil, amended with compost or well-rotted manure, and keep well watered. Sow in the fall and cover with mulch for an early spring crop.

Good flavor. The deer and I like it but I'm not happy with the early bolting. I'll plant my old favorite next year, Bloomsdale Long Standing.

My only complaint is my seed packet said 25 seeds, but only contained 15, of which 10 germinated. The plants are doing great and are already budded and flowering in the middle of May!

Palco Spinach

I will be harvesting my first of season Palco Spinach today. It germinated well, grew rapidly, looks ready to eat as baby spinach. I am anxious to try it!

I made the mistake of planting during hot weather so results were not good. I'll try again next year. I'm very pleased with Pinetree.
