    This has been a fantastic plant for me in central Florida. I was able to have fresh spinach all summer and even through a freeze this winter. It spreads easily and I've transplanted it into other spots and containers. It does get a bit tough/woody and will seed after a while, but this has been the best spinach for me to grow in Florida - and I already have longevity and Okinawa spinach.

    Sissoo Spinach

    The 2 Sissoo spinach plants arrived quickly, unscathed by the trip, and incredibly packed. I am quite pleased with my first order. Waiting on a wild guava, Persian lime, and turmeric.
