Renegade Organic spinach seeds are CERTIFIED ORGANIC! Renegade spinach is a bolt resistant hybrid with smooth, oval, dark green leaves on short stems. It has the same fine taste as Corvair, but grows slower, making it a good all-season option. And Renegade Organic's excellent resistance to downy mildew makes it your best choice for high tunnel production during winter. Bred and produced in Washington State, this variety will stand up to the dampest, coolest conditions, and last well into late spring without bolting. It stood out for us at the local seed trials, and has excellent flavour. Winner of the RHS Award of Garden Merit.

These seeds are coated with an inert, organically certified layer which helps to minimize clumping in storage and seed sowing machines. The coating is approved by organic certifiers in Canada, the US, EU, and Japan.

Timing

Spinach does best in cool weather. Direct sow in the period four weeks before, and three weeks after the last frost date. Spinach will bolt once days get long and hot. Some varieties grow enough to harvest before they bolt. For continuous supply, plant every 3 weeks.

Sow again in the middle two weeks of August for a fall crop that, if cut at the soil level, will come back early the following spring where winters are mild. Shade summer-sown seed beds, keep very well watered, and sow more seeds than you need, as warm soil will reduce germination rates marginally. Thin seedlings, and use cloche protection as cold weather approaches. Late sowings like this can be harvested into December – in mild winters if cloche protection is provided.

Optimal soil temperature: 5-20°C (45-70°F). Seeds should sprout in 7-14 days.
