Bloomsdale spinach, botanically known as Spinacia oleracea, is an annual heirloom variety of spinach. Breeding and hybridization of spinach began in the early 20th century, prompting the Dutch team of Zwaan and Van der Molen to develop the Bloomsdale longest standing spinach which became the most popular and long lasting of these hybridizations. Bloomsdale long standing spinach was developed by inbreeding the monoecious spinach for many generations to create the pure line we grow today.
