Baby spinach is a type of spinach that is harvested when the leaves are still small and tender, typically within 15 to 35 days of planting. It is a popular leafy green vegetable that is often used in salads, smoothies, and as a garnish for various dishes. Baby spinach leaves are generally more tender and have a milder flavor compared to mature spinach leaves.

 

These tiny little leafy greens are of course especially popular and a staple in many households. After all, all you need to do is open up a bag and grab a handful whenever you want to. No wonder people like them so much.

 

Spinach is a relatively low-growing plant with leaves attached to tender little stalks. The stalks can grow around 4 inches tall (1 decimetre) in spring and the leaves can grow to around 8 inches (2 decimetres). The spinach bolts in spring when it gets warmer, and it develops a long flower stalk in the middle of the plant. No more leaves will grow after this happens.
