Easy to grow, adaptable, and most importantly delicious, Viroflay spinach grows some of the largest leaves of any variety - virtually square at up to 10 inches long and nearly as wide. An easy and vigorous grower and heavy yielder. Sow successively every two weeks while weather is cool for continuous crops. 45-60 days.
Plant Information
Introduced in 1866 and the parent of many modern-day hybrids, Viroflay spinach was described by the famous French seed house Vilmorin Andrieux as "Monstrueux de Viroflay," which translates to "the monster spinach of Viroflay." It earned this monstrous distinction because it's a naturally vigorous grower and very large in size, with 2-foot plants producing leaves as long as 10 inches and an amazing 8 inches wide. Viroflay spinach is just as big in flavor; its smooth, dark green leaves are very tender and robust and equally as delicious raw, steamed, or frozen for later use. Spinach is a fast-growing, cool-weather crop that can be planted in successive sowings. Begin in the spring as soon as the soil can be worked and repeat sowings every two weeks until the heat of summer. Then plant again in later summer for a fall crop.
