King of Denmark Spinach is large and dark green. Spreading rounded leaves with a broad, slightly crumpled look, it truly is vegetable royalty. This cool weather vegetable is easy to grow in rich, well-drained soil.
Avoid over cooking spinach as their taste can become bitter. Remove from heat as soon as leaves begin to wilt. Add flavoring such as freshly squeezed lemon juice.
Sow in rows directly outdoors as soon as the ground can be worked. Place one seed every 2 inches and cover with soil. When plants are 3 inches tall, thin to 6 inches apart. Use the tender thinnings in salads. Harvest before flower stalks form.
Best growth occurs in spring and fall. Make a second sowing in late summer for a fall crop.
