Amaranthus spp.

A genuine Caribbean spinach, Blondie is a callaloo that produces yellowish green leaves spaced equidistance along an upright stem. It originally came from a Jamaican garden near Wolverhampton, where it grows perfectly well outdoors.

Sow in June, and harvest when the stems are about 35 to 40cm tall, cutting about 7 to 8cm above ground level. New shoots will then sprout from the stumps, allowing a second cut to be made.

Approximate number of seed per pack: 1000
