    I love stir fry spinach which I normally buy 2 pack from supermarket. The taste is same as it described - UNIQUE! You do not get the bitter after taste with this spinach and the texture is very smooth and silky. I probably didn't give enough watering and it started to seed but from sow to crop it takes 6 weeks. A 2 meter row on a raised bed gives me just enough to serve 5 people. We are big veggie eater and never have enough. Just stir fry with garlic and you want to have more and more!!!
