Spinach

Spinacia oleracea

Spinach is cross-pollinating (wind) and belongs to the goosefoot-family (Chenopodiaceae), like fx. Beetroot. Spinach is an annual plant with single-flowered flowers and are usually dioecious. The male and female flowers are found on each plant. A hybrid variety is produced by crossing a male line in a female line. Many of the new varieties are processed using dioecious pollinators. Spinach prefers a good, deep-mulch, sand-blended clay soil with high reaction rates. Spinach thrives best in the coastal and dry areas.
