Review:

I live in zone 7B and have grown this spinach and Gigante d' Inverno Spinach through last winter and now most of the way through this winter. Last year I sowed the seeds in place under cover in late October. I also planted some seed in pots in a greenhouse to replace seeds that didn't germinate. I transplanted them at the end of November and they all took just fine. Had my first harvest by February. Last year was a "normal" winter for this area and I was able to harvest every three to four weeks. This winter I planter at the beginning of October. Winter started mild and had a harvest at Christmas time and another a couple of weeks later. Winter then went very cold in the mid-teens and snowy with plants and ground freezing. Today came a big thaw, I checked the plants and they have completely rebounded. With a mild streak I am confident that I will be able to harvest again in 3 weeks.

Review:

I ordered this last year and grew it under plastic in my raised bed garden. Last winter was brutally cold and snowy. These plants survived just fine and I had wonderful spinach which was not at all bitter even when it was getting warm in the late Spring. I wanted to save the seeds and the plant grew gigantic. Problem was, I couldn't figure out why it was not giving me any seeds until I found the little furry culprit - a chipmunk who was eating the seed right off the plant. LOL! So I am ordering more seeds from Baker Creek. ;o)

Review:

I have grown this spinach for at least 6 years now, and it never fails. Spinach leaves get big and tasty. You can tell this is a strong variety, it takes a lot to kill it. Also, I have had volunteer spinach pop up the following spring.

Review:

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.
