Viroflay Spinach Seeds
A French heirloom dating back to 1866.
This huge spinach can grow up to 2 feet in diameter, 8" wide crisp, dark green leaves. No matter how big the plant becomes, leaves stay tender and scrumptuous with milder flavor than most other varieties. Also known as “Monstrueux de Viroflay” spinach, the huge leaves are a spinach lover's gourmet delight!
Planting outdoors: Germination can be difficult. Soak seeds for a couple hours in warm water before planting, and plant extras just in case. Germination will be poor when temperatures are over 85F/30C. Try to aim for a seed spacing of at least 3 inches and sow at a depth of around 1/2". Soil temperature should be kept higher than 8°C / 46°F to ensure good germination.
