Tetragonia tetragonioides

Norfolk is a Canadian heirloom dating back to the 1880s.

Offered in 1894 Peter Henderson & Co. catalog

It was known for being extremely hardy down to -30F

It is deeply savoyed, early and works well for spring or late summer plantings.

***We are continuing to work on this line.  We like Norfolk for its earlieness, reliabilty, savoy leaves that stand up well and its heat tolerance.  That is kind of funny considering this spinach is supposed to tolerate extreme cold.  Our farm experiences 50 degree temeperature swings daily and this spinach exceeds where others go straight to flower.  It has everything we look for in a spinach.  Flavor, standability for market, prolific and early production.   Let us know what you think of it!

Planting Tips for Heirloom Organic 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 organic 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.

Organic 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.
