This could be why spinach has earned a spot on the Environmental Working Group’s dirty dozen—a list of 12 crops that have the highest pesticide load.

This is a variety we've never encountered in supermarkets but appeared abundantly among our upland organic farmers' gardens. Takes about sixty days to grow with multiple harvests before maturity makes it bitter or tough (like people you know?) But the farmers like it because it grows so well especially at this time of year. The care for us as market facilitators is to:

  1. Remind farmers not to pick beyond maturity (when it flowers).
  2. Promote a cyclical purchase and production so gardens don't turn into monocultures.

This variety travels pretty well and it can keep in your refrigerator for two weeks when dry (with towel absorption). As for food prep, you can have it raw in a salad or blitzed in a smoothie. Here's a good source on the nutritional benefits either way. 

What Makes our Gulay Special?

Buying local, seasonal and organically grown produce means that you learn to eat with the seasons, and in exchange, get to eat produce that’s filled with nutrition and that tastes more alive.  Food that's flavor-packed, bursting with nutrients, and free from nasties like chemical pesticides and synthetic fertilizers.

Our customers also love our cherry tomatoes and saging bulkan, varieties you won’t be able to get through conventional farming and mass-produced marketing channels.

Your commitment to eat healthy meets our farmers' commitment to grow nutritious food- and together we grow a sustainable food system. Taste the difference with us and let’s change the world with food!
