Tyee Hybrid - With the deeply crinkled (savoyed) leaves that many people prefer in a spinach, this hybrid is slower to bolt - go to seed - than other savoy-type varieties.

New Zealand - This heat-tolerant, spreading vine's dark green leaves taste just like spinach even though it's not a true spinach. New Zealand spinach keeps on producing after the heat of summer has caused real spinach to bolt (go to seed). Leaves are triangular with a glistening underside.
Sow in row directly outdoors as soon as ground can be worked. Place one seed every 2 inches and cover with soil. When plants are about 3 inches tall, thin to 6 inches apart. Use thinnings in salads. Harvest before flower stalk forms. Harvest entire plant at soil line when outer leaves are 6 inches long or just cut away outer leaves as needed for continuous crop until hot weather. Sow again in late summer.
