Giant Nobel spinach is extremely large and has a spreading in habit. Mmmm could that be where it's name came from??? OK, for a spinach it is big! That means easy picking and cleaning. You know, getting that pesky sand off those leaves? It is a breeze with such big leaves. Giant Nobel is a slow bolt spinach. Plant it in late spring for heavy yields of giant, thick, dark green leaves.\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cp\u003eSpinach is a cool weather favorite able to be sown in early spring, late summer, or winters in warm enough regions. Spinach can be started indoors 4-6 weeks prior to final spring frost but, for best starts, sow directly outdoors 5-6 weeks prior to final spring frost. Sow 2-3 seeds 1\/2” deep and 4” apart in fertile, composted, well-drained soil with a pH of 6.5-7.0. Seeds germinate in 7-21 days thinning to 1 plant every 6-12” in the garden as true leaves establish. Harvest large outer leaves often to boost production while allowing smaller leaves to continue to mature. Avoid nitrogen-rich fertilizers known to spoil spinach flavor.\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003ch3\u003eHow to Harvest Spinach\u003c\/h3\u003e\n\u003cp\u003eMost varieties of spinach are ready to harvest 35-50 days from sowing. Spinach is one of the most productive and most popular “cut and come again” varieties in the home garden and takes only days for regrowth. Using scissors, simply snip larger outer leaves for harvest while allowing smaller leaves to continue vegetative growth. Harvest often to encourage production. Shoots that begin to bolt can be harvested to redirect plant energy from seed production to leafing.\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003ch3\u003eCulinary Uses of Spinach\u003c\/h3\u003e\n\u003cp\u003eGiant Noble Spinach, also known as “Smooth Leaf Spinach” can be cooked similar to collard greens, to bring out its savory flavor. This large-leaf spinach heirloom is also a popular vegetable for canning. As a superfood, Giant Noble Spinach can provide you a meal that’s packed with vitamins, such as a verdant and subtly sweet spinach salad, with raspberry vinaigrette, walnuts and goat cheese. The smooth leaves of Giant Noble Spinach make a popular green smoothie and breakfast option that’s packed with vitamins. Not only do leafy greens such as spinach provide folic acid, it also has magnesium and iron. Pair your blended green spinach drink with fruit such as strawberries or lemon for a cleanse. Excellent variety for canning or freezing. The big thick leaves hold up well.\u003c\/p\u003e\n\n\u003cp\u003e\u003cstrong\u003eFACT:\u003c\/strong\u003e The 1985 Seed Savers inventory listed spinach 72 varieties. That same inventory in 2009 listed only 21 varieties! This is why seed saving is so important. We are losing our food heritage literally!
