Spinach 'Tetona' F1 Hybrid

Spinacia oleracea

Spinach Tetona is a very productive variety producing bright green, smooth, rounded leaves available for picking over a long period. Slow to bolt, and ideal baby leaves for salads. Spinach Tetona also features excellent downy mildew resistance, especially important for spring and autumn sowings. Seeds are in the RHS Vegetable Collection.

    • 1 packet (500 spinach seeds)

    • Despatch: Despatch within 24 hours
    • £2.19
Sow seeds March to June, or mid August to Sept for late autumn crops, 12mm (0.5 inch) deep in well prepared, fertile soil, in broad drills. Allow 30cm (12 inches) between rows.

If 'baby leaves' are required then no thinning is necessary, for larger plants thin to 5cm (2 inches) apart. Sow 'little and often' avoiding hottest summer periods when most spinach will bolt freely. Water regularly during spells of dry weather. Growing Spinach between taller plants such as Sweetcorn will offer shade and result in better quality in warm summer weather.

Prefers moist, well-drained soil. Harvest April to July, or Sept to Oct with cloches to extend season.
