Tyee Organic

Tyee is thick, juicy and very tasty. For salads and cooking even during the summer heat, Tyee is the favourite choice, and it is conveniently slow to bolt. This certified organic, semi-savoyed, vigorous variety also tolerates most known races of downy mildew, permitting heavy winter picking.

Slow to bolt

4 out of 5 (Overall Rating)

Indeed, this is the spinach that lasts the longest. During a very, very hot spring this year, the Bloomsdale held out well but eventually bolted. The Tyee on the other hand lasted well into the season, still producing nice, tender leaves long after even some lettuces had bolted. The only reason I can\'t give it a 5/5 is the taste. Too mild and the texture seems \"paperish\" at times. Lacks the punch and crunch that you get with, for example, Bloomsdale. Good to grow alongside though as you can harvest much later.
