Spinach plants are grown for their edible leaves. The vitamin rich leaves grow in a clump and are eaten both raw and cooked. Spinach leaves are generally bright to dark green, broadly oval or spade shaped, and can be smooth or crinkled. It is mild flavoured, and has succulent leaves which are deep green in colour. It traces its origins back to Persia, but was cultivated widely all over Europe by the 15th century.
Varieties of Spinach
Spinach leaves can either be flat or slightly crinkled. Spinach can be purchased fresh, canned or frozen. Fresh spinach can be sold in bunches. Or it can be already washed, and sealed in plastic bags. Spinach is also often available as baby spinach (often used in salads). Other greens are sold separately, such as New Zealand Spinach, which comes from a different plant family.
