• Alaska Spinach: Savory, Succulent Salad Selection

      Lewis, Carol E.; Holloway, Pat; Matheke, Grant (University of Alaska Fairbanks. Agricultural and Forestry Experiment Station, 1999)
      Spinach salad is a new, exciting choice for the table! There is an increasing use of a variety of greens in salads by U.S. consumers, spinach among them. The fresh quality demanded by Alaska consumers could be met by Alaska producers from June through August if a spinach cultivar that did not bolt early in the season could be identified. For the past 30 years, horticulturists at the Fairbanks Experiment Farm, now a part of the Agricultural and Forestry Experiment Station, University of Alaska Fairbanks, have tested spinach cultivars looking for a cultivar that will not bolt early in the growing season.
