Spinach ‘Renegade F1’ can be grown throughout the season but is a particularly good choice for winter and early spring cultivation. After around six weeks the crop will already have plenty of mass and an outstanding leaf quality. It can then be harvested as a whole by cutting off the plant just above ground level. This spinach will keep for up to two weeks in cool, humid conditions.
Yellowing of spinach leaves can indicate a magnesium or nitrogen deficiency. Note that too much nitrogen can cause excessive nitrate accumulation in the leaves, making the spinach less healthy.
