DIABLO is a Euro/Oriental cross spinach in the Raven style with a flat overall leaf surface and very dark colour. Faster to mature, DIABLO is an ideal accompaniment to Raven for growers producing a flat leaf product. Suitable for both babyleaf and bunching spinach production, DIABLO shows good tolerance to unseasonable rain through the warm months. DIABLO can be harvested from late Spring through Summer and into the Autumn.
