Giant Noble spinach is a longstanding spinach variety that is a little sweeter than regular spinach and offers and extended harvest window. It grows up to 20" tall in about 45 days and is quite bolt resistant. The leaves are smooth and suitable for fresh eating, freezing or canning.
Because spinach loves cool weather and can survive sub-zero temps when protected sufficiently, it should be planted as soon as the ground can be worked in spring or after the heat of summer for a fall crop. Gardeners in regions with warmer winters will be able to grow spinach all winter long. Sow the seeds in deeply worked soil 1/2" deep and 2" apart in rows 12-8" apart. Later thin the seedlings to 4-8" apart. Thinned seedlings can be transplanted elsewhere for a larger crop. For continuous crop, plant seeds every 10 days until the summer heat begins. Spinach goes dormant over temps 80-85°. Spinach loves shade and can be planted under taller plants. If temps rise above 80°, provide some sort of shade. Begin harvesting the spinach leaves as soon as they grow big enough for eating.
