Organic Butterflay Spinach
20 days to baby leaf harvest | 45 days to full leaf harvest | Spinacea oleracea
We just love the melt-in-your-mouth deep green leaves of Butterflay, full of deep mineral succulence at any stage from baby leaf to full-size leaves. All spinach grows best in cool temperatures but Butterflay is exceptional, easily surviving uncovered in our gardens each winter.
At Fruition, we sow spinach in September for a fall harvest that will overwinter and re-grow with the sweetest, most tender leaves as soon as the snows melt. Even if you don’t fall-sow your spinach, tuck them in first thing in spring when you plant your peas to enjoy the maximum harvest before the heat of summer inspires them to bolt in June.
