Review:

Mistake after mistake... And they flourished! I did literally everything wrong.... After planting at the beginning of June in a foggy area of SF, we've been eating baby leaves for 2 full weeks( 7/14) I wouldn't suggest following my example. I mixed up seeds and accidently germinated these by soaking, then wet coffee filters in a bag on a heater (in SF we use the heat all summer) so environment alternated between 75 and during the day and 55 at night. They germinated in 2 days and thinking they were another vegetable entirely, I planted the seeds an inch down in a raised bed(yet another strike) One week later, they sprouted and by week 3 were hardy small plants.By the 4th of July I had numerous plants with gorgeous small spinach leaves. We've been eating the baby leaves regularly for the last week and they continue to grow well, despite having been scalped early. Taste is mild with a tender texture... Planting more(correctly) as I write!

Review:

I planted this in August last year and continue to harvest tons to date. It overwintered fine and never got bitter, nor has it bolted. Very meaty and delicious. I have a new crop going now I germinated in the refrigerator and set out in very early March. I am eating both the August and new crops with equal delight. Out-produced my old standby,and will always have a place in my garden now.

Review:

This spinach had good germination and is producing truly monster leaves. Largest leaf I measured was 9 inches! The only problem I have is holes from slugs. Will grow in fall again!

The leaves are monstrous, which I guess the name implies! Very tender, enormous leaves are up and going early spring and delicious. Won't grow other varieties now that I've discovered this gem!

What are the pros? Excellent flavor, low pests

What are the cons? Starting inside is hard

Review:

I LOVE this spinach. Tastes great, different from what you can get at the store, and grows vigorously and generates tons of leaves once established. Also, large leaves are not significantly less delicious than small leaves unless they are extra, extra old. However, getting it to work out was pretty tough. I live in coastal California, so my land is growing something every day out of the year - so I start everything inside before I put it out. Spinach is always a little bit finnicky to start in an artificial climate, but I had to do the following this time to get optimal results: 1) Started seeds in a wet paper towel inside a plastic bag inside my wine fridge - Getting them to germ over 60F was not happening at all, not even slowly. Very quickly germinated at 55. 2) I over-exposed them to grow light durations indoors and triggered bolting after only 2 or 3 true leaves. They thought it was summer I guess. I thought I could cheat and get some growth - guess not. Stick to 11 hrs
