HEIRLOOM Exceptionally cold-tolerant with smooth, melt-in-your-mouth leaves, we savor Organic Giant Winter Spinach from early fall all the way to late spring. Her leaves at any size are rich and deliciously succulent, all the more so with any cold Giant Winter experiences. All spinach grows best in cool temperatures and Giant Winter is truly the best we’ve found, easily surviving uncovered in our gardens each winter. Growing spinach under hoops and floating row cover will help you harvest all the more!
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.
