Spinacia oleracea
Giant Nobel Spinach (48 days)

Seed Package Contains 4 grams or approx. 350 seeds
 



Introduced in the 1920s this has remained a popular spinach for some time now.  Which is saying something.

Giant Nobel spinach is extremely large and has a spreading in habit.  Mmmm could that be where it's name came from???  OK, for a spinach it is big!  That means easy picking and cleaning.  You know, getting that pesky sand off those leaves?  It is a breeze with such big leaves. 

Giant Nobel is a slow bolt spinach.  Plant it in late spring  for heavy yields of giant, thick, dark green leaves. 
 
The 1985 Seed Savers inventory listed 72 varieties.  That same inventory in 2009 listed only 21 varieties!  This is why seed saving is so important.  We are losing our food heritage literally!  The more varieties,  the greater number of genes that can carry resistance to disease and things yet unseen.  Please learn to save seed.


Excellent variety for canning or freezing.  The big thick leaves hold up well.

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 - not letting the vegetable seeds dry out prematurely or overwatering and possibly having them rot.
