Carmel Spinach F1 Hybrid

Spinacia oleracea, F1

Seed package contains four grams, approximately 150 seeds.  

Carmel is a fast-growing and very uniform spinach that is great when harvested as a baby or full-sized leaf.  The attractive, dark-green, leaves are upright and semi-savoyed.  Plants have high resistance to downy mildew races 1-11 and 13.  Harvest at 3-5 weeks for baby leaves, sow every 7 days for a continuous supply.  Great for fall planting!

Growing Information

Spacing: 10 seeds per foot in rows 12-18 inches apart for full-sized leaves, or 40 seeds per foot in rows 18 inches apart for baby leaves.  

Soil pH: 6.5-7.5, does not do well under 6.0

When to sow: Direct sow in spring as soon as soil can be worked, or in protected structures in mid-late summer for fall harvest, or from late summer until the first frost for harvest fall-spring.    

Optimal soil temperature for germination: Prefers cool soil. If sowing in soil above 85F, germination may be low or erratic.  Irrigating to cool soil can help.

Planting Tips for Heirloom Spinach:

Spinach is a cool weather crop and can either be planted in spring or fall.  For a spring crop, be sure to start these vegetable seeds indoors 6-8 weeks before the last frost date so that they can be transplanted in very early spring.  For a fall harvest, these heirloom seeds can be directly sown.  For best results, it is very important to keep soil evenly moist with regular light waterings. 

When direct seeding, you should plant these heirloom seeds 1-2" apart.  Once they have shown several true leaves and are about 4" tall, you should then thin to final spacing.  For continual harvests, stagger plantings every 2-3 weeks for delicous spinach all season long.

Seeding Rate: 32,000 plants/acre, aproximately 2 lb.

Heirloom seeds are hardy, but always take care with your garden seeds to give them the appropriate amount of moisture - don't let the vegetable seeds dry out prematurely, and don't overwater and possibly have them rot.
