Winter Bloomsdale Spinach

This old favorite full-savoyed type has dark-green, thick, succulent, flavorful leaves.

Compared with the heirloom standard Long Standing Bloomsdale, it is slower growing and slower bolting to seed as long as conditions remain relatively cool (<75° F). It is well suited for growing over-winter, as it stands up to severe conditions. It may also be grown in early spring for early summer harvest, and in the fall for early winter harvest. A favorite of both gardeners and chefs.
