large amount of unripe fruit, an undesirable characteristic for mechanical harvesting, but a desirable characteristic for you-pick operations as nonuniform ripening would extend the harvest period. Zatylny et al. (2002) listed ‘Honeywood’, ‘Northline

.1 shoots ( Table 1 ). In the same plots in 2004, stems and flowers were evaluated. Stems of ‘Novablue’ were shorter than those of ‘Fundy’ and generally unbranched ( Table 1 ). Unbranched stems are more amenable to mechanical harvesting. ‘Novablue’ had fewer

10–15 years. Spinach is now planted on high-density 80-inch-wide beds and is predominantly mechanically harvested. Heinrich et al. (p. 325) evaluated nutrient uptake and water use of spinach grown with these modern methods. Trials and surveys were
