Spinacia oleracea

50 days large leaf.  Best, most reliable spinach for winter production.  Large green glossy leaves are semi-savoyed. Selected for excellent winter hardiness and productivity, not a great performer in summer as it bolts quickly.  Plant in fall or very early spring.  Spreading, rather than upright growth habit.  

Nice, mild flavor, harvest as baby leaves for salads or wait for full size.  Vitamin rich large leaves are easy to harvest and cook with.  Holds up well to steaming, stir frying, and cooking.  

How to grow it:

Direct sow up to 8 weeks before the average last frost or plant in late summer or fall to overwinter. Plant successively every two weeks to keep you in young greens, or give them more space to mature and harvest the whole plant.  Plant in August or September for overwintering and early spring harvest.
