We just love the melt-in-your-mouth deep green leaves of Organic Butterflay Spinach, full of deep mineral succulence at any stage from baby leaf to full-size leaves. All spinach grows best in cool temperatures but Butterflay is exceptional, easily surviving uncovered in our gardens each winter.

Organic Butterflay Spinach

20 days to baby leaf harvest 45 days to full leaf harvest Spinacea oleracea

Description

We just love the melt-in-your-mouth deep green leaves of Organic Butterflay Spinach, full of deep mineral succulence at any stage from baby leaf to full-size leaves. All spinach grows best in cool temperatures but Butterflay is exceptional, easily surviving uncovered in our gardens each winter.

At Fruition, we sow spinach in September for a fall harvest that will overwinter and re-grow with the sweetest, most tender leaves as soon as the snows melt. Even if you don’t fall-sow your spinach, tuck them in first thing in spring when you plant your peas to enjoy the maximum harvest before the heat of summer inspires them to bolt in June.

    Although I’m a good gardener, I’ve rarely had success raising spinach–until I planted Organic Butterflay Spinach from Fruition. It’s been an especially good cold frame crop this spring, thanks to their email newsletter section for overwintering it.

    YaaHOoooooo! Wishing your baskets full of spinach in this and many seasons to come 🙂 -The Fruition Team

    I agree with Joan! I had never had much success with spinach, but Butterflay is incredibly abundant and delicious, with no oxalic acid teeth-fuzziness. I’ll plant a PILE more in my pit greenhouse here in the foothills west of Boulder, CO.
