Spinach, Verdil (Organic)

Spinacia oleracea. 45 days.

Giant winter type, perfect for spring, autumn and overwinter cultivation, but not summer. With a particularly aromatic flavor, its best suited use is raw, although it is also good cooked. We are always impressed with Verdil’s winter hardiness. The plants can stand in the freezing mud all winter and somehow not be bothered by slugs. Bred in Germany by Brigitte von Wistinghausen with support from Kultursaat and Bingenheimer Saatgut.

Seed produced by Avoca in Corvallis, Oregon.

Geographical Origin

Best when direct sown, early spring or late summer / early fall, 2-3 seeds per inch in 12” rows. May also be sown indoors. Transplant 3-4 weeks after sprouting to 6” centers. Great choice for winter gardens in our area, providing food during the hunger gap.

Seed Saving

Collect seeds from 30 or more plants to avoid inbreeding, making sure at least 5 are male. Cut seed heads when seeds are dry, thresh by hand or by dancing. Winnow to clean. Isolate from other flowering spinach by 1 mile.
