We have been delighted with the performance of recently launched Upolu spinach this year.  In conditions where the ground has been saturated for long periods Upolu has consistently retained its colour and leaf thickness.  Upolu has an excellent plant habit with a good dark green leaf colour and consistency of leaf size, uniformity and thickness.  These traits have ensured that our growers benefit from a more superior bag quality as a result of less cut leaves and an extremely vibrant colour in the pack.  For further information on Upolu and where it might fit in your Spinach portfolio please click here.
