Traditional crop in Europe for generations. This type was grown by Thos. Jefferson in the early Nineteenth Century. In 1806, Bernard McMahon of Philadelphia said it was "the hardiest kind," and that may well be true to this day. Leaves are more pointed and arrow-shaped than the common type. The sturdy plants yield over a long season, producing flat, tender, medium-green leaves with red-tinged stalks. Slower to bolt than ordinary spinach. Traditionally sown in late-summer or early fall for harvest through autumn and into winter.

What are the pros? cold hardy
What are the cons? bolts with heat
Recommended variety in McMahon's American Gardener as the most hardy off all spinach...and it really preforms well in the cold. Try it in a cold frame or low tunnel and you will be very happy to have fresh greens all winter.

What are the pros? easy, prolific, yummy
What are the cons? none
By far my favorite spinach. I love how I can grow it all winter her, as long as it's in a cold frame. Some plates tolerate the cold, this one loves it. It happily grows, fully exposed, if planted here in CO in late March, which I did last year. And super yummy.
