What happened to spinach in recent years?

johnb | Aug 25, 2014 10:47 AM

I like spinach, and used to buy and prepare it often. It was the dark green, curly, non-baby kind, which stood up well to being cooked and kept its "body" reasonably well (technically called savoy spinach), and usually came either loose or in celo bags. Lately, I can never find that type of spinach fresh in any store -- all I ever find is "baby" spinach, which is fine for serving raw as for example in salads but turns to a loose slime if cooked more than a few seconds.

Where did curly spinach go?
