When is Spinach Beet ready to harvest?

Posted Jun 12 2010 5:31am

Spinach Beet is grown for the young leaves which are ready for harvesting when they are about 6 to 9 inches long from tip of leaf to far end of stem. You may want to harvest leaves for salads when they are tiny – much smaller than this.

The leaves keep coming (it is also known as perpetual spinach) – so keep picking whether you want them or not, to encourage new ones to grow. Cut leaves from the outside of the plant, taking care to avoid damaging the roots.

Thanks Sara from FarmingFriends for asking this question
