Focus on Longevity Spinach

Longevity spinach is a leafy vegetable that was relatively unknown in the U.S. until recent years.  It has rapidly gained in popularity as more people grow it and become familiar with its health benefits.

In warm climates the plant is perennial and will provide harvests for many years.

Longevity spinach works well in smoothies or is eaten raw.
