Fordhook Giant is an old favorite with its tender strong stems and large smooth leaves packed with vitamins and minerals. A vigorous grower with a long growing season, it will provide fresh greens from early summer into fall, and year-round in mild climates. The leaves can be harvested at any stage of development. Steam, sautee or cook like spinach. The stems are delicious when steamed. Ready to eat in just 5-8 weeks and you can harvest continuously.
