C2 606 spinach seeds replace Skookum. Dark green leaves are upright so they are easy to pick and exceptionally uniform in size and shape. The leaves are round to oval with smooth edges and quite flat. They are held upright, off the soil for cleaner harvests. C2 606 spinach is also resistant to rust and Downy Mildew races. This is a top choice for baby leaf spinach production, but the leaves stay tender at full maturity. Sow short rows of spinach seeds at two week intervals starting as early as February on the coast. Use a cloche row cover or cold frame to provide frost protection until mid-March.
Matures in 45 days. (Hybrid seeds)
