Spinach - Bloomsdale

Spinach - Bloomsdale

Description

This sweet, heirloom variety has a deeper and more interesting flavor than the standard flat leaf spinach. Each leaf is heavily crinkled, giving it a heartier texture.

Seasonal Availability

Late fall, winter and early spring. Bloomsdale does not do well with heat and easily bolts.

Pack Size

4# Case

Applications/Techniques

Can be used in salads, appetizers, soups and braises. The small, more tender leaves are great sautéed or wilted with a little olive oil and garlic. The stem is edible and super sweet since the plant's sugar is stored there.

History

Bloomsdale is an old variety of spinach, introduced in the 19th century by David Ladreth, who named the greens in honor of his Bristol, Pennsylvania, farm.
