New spinach variety

Source: Johnny's Seeds

I chose organic Corvair spinach to replace Space as the primary spinach variety for measuring growth rate.  See if you can guess why based on the High Mowing description:

"High level of downy mildew resistance. Smooth, oval leaves are medium to dark-green and upright for easy harvesting by hand or harvester. High yield potential and widely adapted for spring or fall productions." 

How many races of downy mildew is it resistant to? 11! Hopefully won't have to worry about downy mildew this year.  I also have some other varieties to try out including, emu and red cardinal.
