Every seed came up, they're about 3' tall with a sturdy stem. Waiting until mid March to put out in the southern (Ga) garden. Will be licking my lips watching them flower and fruit. I like these as an addition to a traditional red tomato salad.
I had 40 mph winds my greenhouse fell over and was so surprised the seeds survived two days in the cold under soil and are still growing. The roots were in tact so i transplanted them, they are doing just fine. 10 stars

Organic Norfolk Spinach
Organic Norfolk Spinach (45 days)
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!
