RFF#15 – Spinach planted in the spring has higher antioxidant levels compared to spinach planted in the autumn

Basically, more light (see RFF#9) and a warmer growing temperature, lead to higher nutrient levels.

—I learned about this fact from: Terry LA, ed. Health-promoting properties of fruits and vegetables. CABI: Cambridge, 2011.
