Dark, savoyed leaves with an upright habit and excellent flavor. Winter Bloomsdale Spinach is the most cold-hardy spinach we’ve grown. Bred for fall-sowing and overwintering, but also thrives in spring gardens. Market customers ask for Winter Bloomsdale by name, craving its sweet, buttery flavor. Sweetens up even more after a light, fall frost. The pounds add up quick when harvesting these dense leaves- which hold up well during handling.
