Botanical Name: Spinacia oleracea

Days to Maturity: 28–45 days

Family: Amaranthaceae

Native: Southwest Asia

Hardiness: Frost-tolerant annual. Very cold hardy; fall-sown plants may overwinter even in climates with sub-zero temperatures.

Plant Dimensions: 6"–8" tall

Variety Information: Rich green, glossy, 6" slightly puckered leaves.

Attributes: Good for Containers, Disease Resistant, Heat Tolerant

When to Sow Outside: RECOMMENDED. 4 to 6 weeks before your average last frost date, and when soil temperature is above 40°F; ideally 50°–75°F. Successive Sowings: Every 3 weeks until 4 weeks before your average first fall frost date. If mulched, spinach can overwinter in sub–zero temperatures. Soil temperatures above 85°F halt germination.

When to Start Inside: Not recommended; roots sensitive to disturbance.

Days to Emerge: 5–10 days

Seed Depth: ½"

Seed Spacing: A group of 3 seeds every 6"

Row Spacing: 12"

Thinning: When 1" tall thin to 1 every 6"

Harvesting: Pick individual leaves from outer edges of plant as they become big enough to use or cut the whole plant 1" above the ground; new leaves will be produced. When picking individual leaves, also removing the leaf stem at the same time is best; this reduces vulnerability to disease during die-back and conserves plant energy. Harvest before the plant sends up a flower stalk (bolting). Just prior to bolting, leaves take on an "arrowhead" shape, adding small keel shapes to the base of the leaf.

Great Variety with some issues

I love this variety of spinach, but I have not had good germination and sustained growth overall. It seems to be rather tempermental, so I think I will stick with some of the other traditional varieties in the future.

Owner Response: Hi Patricia, Thanks for the feedback. Spinach can be finicky, in warm soil (over 80 degrees F) is will go dormant. Storing spinach seeds in the freezer and shading the soil with elevated boards or fabric can help. I thought I would leave this tip here in case it is helpful. Our seeds are regularly tested and we are happy to guarantee them. A customer service agent will be with you shortly.
