Verdil Spinach | Certified Organic by Ecocert Canada Spinacia oleracea | Annual | Heirloom
Very cold tolerant, fast growing large leaf variety with pleasant aromatic flavor. An excellent choice for overwintering and early spring crops, this medium green leaf is ideal for steaming or salads. Verdil stood out with the best emergence of any variety in our spring trials. Original breeder is German biodynamic farmer Kultursaat.
