Spinach 'Medania' is a good, healthy variety with dark green leaves that have a wonderful soft texture as well as excellent flavour.

Grow it as a cut-and-come again salad leaf, picked at the baby leaf stage, or space it more widely and harvest leaves fully grown. I find spinach does best in dappled shade.

The best spinach I have ever grown

Reviewed 19th June 2015 by Mary Bevan

I am currently harvesting masses of this lovely spinach. It has a wonderful flavour, lighter than most other spinaches, and even the larger leaves remain tender and full of flavour. I have never before managed to grow spinach that I actually liked, but I am about to order another packet of seeds of this one. My friends to whom I have given some of the leaves all agree that this is an excellent spinach.
