Spinach – Giant Winter



The largest-leaved spinach we’ve ever grown! Giant Winter Spinach is a semi-savoyed variety with great cold-hardiness and bunch-ability. Best in early spring or fall, but can also be overwintered with protection. Giant Winter is not quite as cold-hardy as Winter Bloomsdale, but faster growing and more vigorous. An old European variety also known as “Gigante d’Inverno.”

Days to Maturity: 50
Latin name: Spinacia oleracea
Life cycle for seed saving: Annual

Planting Instructions:
