Ratings & Reviews
Love this Spinach!
This was my first year growing this spinach and I think every single seed germinated and grew very well. It grew quickly, very heat tolerant and I got at least 5 cuttings from each plant and some a few more! Very good flavor. My new favorite! I am now going to save the seeds for the next crop.
Few germinated. Slow growth
I planted so many seeds indoors, outdoors, everywhere in between and only two germinated.
Seed Savers Response:
Spinach will germinate at soil temperatures between 40-75°F. Spinach takes up to a month to sprout at 40° while it may only take 5 days at 75° but at higher temperatures you may only see 30% germination rates. For best results soak seeds over night in water one week before planting.
