Sowing Indoors: 3-4 weeks before planting out in early to mid-spring. Provide 50-65ºF soil temperature. Sow 2-3 seeds per cell/pot. Sowing into individual biodegradable peat/cow pots reduces root damage when transplanting. Transplant after last frost, 6-12" apart.

Sow heavy seeded rows, 30 seeds per foot, every 10-14 days for baby greens using the Pinetree spinach mix or larger 1000 seed packet. Sow in mid to late summer for fall harvests.

How much does a packet plant: Small packet= 6-10 feet, large packet = 80-100 feet for mature plants or 20-25 feet for baby greens 

Harvest: Starting with baby greens at 3” or the entire plant before it bolts.

Tips: Plant in fertile soil, amended with compost or well-rotted manure, and keep well watered. Sow in the fall and cover with mulch for an early spring crop.

Giant Noble Spinach

Very pleased with the durability and continued quality of this spinach. It is tolerating our early heat (May). The Bloomsdale has bolted but this variety has not.

Spring spinach

I’ve grown this spinach along with a few other varieties through the winter—plant in August, harvest all spring. The leaves grow enormous and stay sweet and free of leaf miners for a long time. I’ve finally done enough trials that I only grow this Giant Noble variety.

Big and fluffy

I’ve bought this spinach the past 3 years and they always turn into big happy fluffy plants. I’ll for sure buy them again next season
