50 days — The plants of 'Giant Nobel' spinach are very large and spreading in habit. Sow in late spring (it is slow to bolt) for heavy yields of giant, thick, dark green leaves. Along with wonderful fresh use qualities, it is also an excellent variety for canning or freezing.

Developed by inbreeding a monoecious plant found in the variety named 'Gaudry' and released by Zwaan and Van der Molen, Voorburg, Netherlands in 1926.[1] An "All-America Selection®" winner in 1933. According to the USDA, 'Giant Nobel' spinach has also been marketed over the years by various seed suppliers using the following synonyms:

'Diamond', 'Diamant', 'Early Giant Smooth Leaf', 'Nobel; Enkhuizen Monstrous', 'Gaudflay', 'Gaudry Long Standing', 'Giant Fillbasket', 'Giant Leaved Long Standing Gaudry', 'Giant Smooth Leaved', 'Giant Thick Leaved', 'Large Round Thick Leaved', 'Large Round Thick Leaved Gaudry', 'Matador', 'Matador Longstanding Giant Leaved', 'Monstrous of Enkhuizen', 'New Long Standing Gaudry', 'Nobel Giant Leaved', 'Nobel Gaudry', 'Round Thick Leaf', and 'Supra'.

Each packet contains four grams, which is approximately 300 seeds.
Great Spinach
I planted this as a fall crop in late August. It grew very well and I had spinach until Halloween time. We did have a mild Autumn this year in Buffalo, NY.

It just keeps on coming!
We are in love with this spinach. I planted it in March and we have had a constant stream of more than we can eat for over 2 months. I have had to give it away and freeze some too. It is tender and mild in flavor. It's getting hot now (end of June) and has started to bolt, but it still tastes delicious. I'll plant a fall round in August too.

Baby leaves are so sweet and tasty.
Easy to grow. I got 100% germination starting them inside. Baby leaves are so sweet, I eat them without any dressing. (Why ruin a good thing?) I'm not sure how mature leaves taste yet, nor can I comment on their production as full-sized plants, as I can't stop eating them as small leaves. (I guess I should grow more, right?)
