Bloomsdale Spinach is an heirloom variety, with large, Kelly green colored leaves. Each leaf is puckered where it meets the stem and has a sweet flavor and succulent texture. Bloomsdale spinach has a more substantial, winter greens taste and texture than standard spinach.
Winter through Late Spring.
An excellent source of antioxidants, spinach has four times the beta carotene of broccoli. High in lutein, nutrients in spinach help lower blood cholesterol. It also contains carbohydrates, protein, fiber, vitamin A, vitamin C, calcium, iron and folic acid. For best nutritional value, eat raw or slightly cooked.
Reminiscent of Swiss chard, both in flavor and size, this variety can be cooked for longer periods of time, and holds its shape and texture well. Ideal for sauteing and wilting, use as a substitute for collards, chard or kale. Pair with strong garlic and onion, dried fruits, citrus, pork, poultry and beef. Compliment this spinach's earthy flavor with aged cheeses, chiles, pomegranate seeds, nuts or eggs. Keep dry and refrigerated, then rinse very well before using.
An old variety, Bloomsdale spinach, botanically named Spinacia oleracea, was first introduced into the culinary world by a fellow named David Ladreth in 1826. This 19th century spinach variety was released by his seed company, D. Landreth and Company, and named in honor of his farm located at Bristol, Pennsylvania.
