37 days. Truly a four-season spinach, this widely adapted variety from Washington State is a favorite among gardeners for its superior disease resistance, good holding ability, and off-the-ground habit. It's a favorite among diners for the rich flavor and nutritional value of its large, semi-savoyed, deep green leaves. In other words, you just can't go wrong with Tyee!
This plant holds its foliage upright, off the ground, so even the bottom leaves develop full and clean. Reaching just 6 to 10 inches high and up to a foot wide, it is a neat, very dense spinach, as attractive as it is delicious. And it's ready in no time, yet will hold for a week or so in peak condition without losing a jot of its flavor or texture.
Tyee is resistant to races 1, 2, and 3 of downy mildew, making it a good choice for climates where this has been a problem in the past. It loves full sunshine and grows well for crops in any season. Very bolt-resistant, it lasts better in warm weather than most other varieties.
The leaves on this spinach are somewhat savoyed, very dark green, and heavy. They have a rich, succulent, yet meaty bite, quite substantial and satisfying. You'll love them fresh from the garden or sauteed in stews and stir-fries. Packet is 200 seeds.
