I direct sowed this spinach in February in my zone 8 Northern California garden and they were a bit slow to germinate and get going but once they did, wow. I started picking baby leaves about mid April and then the weather warmed up a bit here and boom, suddenly the plants are huge. Monstrueux indeed. So now I'm picking like crazy to use them before the heat sets in here. But no matter how big they get, the leaves are still tasty and tender. And since the leaves are mostly smooth, very little dirt or grit sticks to them so they are very easy to rinse and eat. I have never grown such yummy spinach, and couldn't be more pleased at my crop this spring. Too hot for them in the summer but I'll be planting these again in fall for sure.
