CARMINE is a fast growing, red stemmed spinach in the Reddy style. An Oriental type, CARMINE is able to be grown year round, although best colour expression will occur outside of the warmest conditions and will become more intense as temperatures drop. CARMINE has a dark green leaf with a deep red colouration throughout the stem and veins and makes an attractive addition to salad mixes. Being an Oriental type spinach, CARMINE is a far better option than other red varieties currently on the market for cool and cold season production where its extra vigour allows for a much earlier maturity.
