50 days — The leaves of 'Viroflay' are large, dark-green, smooth, crisp, and can reach about ten inches in length. The plants can reach up to two feet in diameter so it is important not to neglect thinning your seedlings.
An old French variety whose parentage and date of introduction are unknown, we do know that 'Viroflay' dates back to at least the mid-nineteenth century. It is thought to have been introduced into the American seed trade in about 1866.
According to the USDA, 'Viroflay' spinach has also been marketed over the years by various seed suppliers using the following synonyms:
'Monstrueux de Viroflay,' 'Early Thick Leaved', 'Flanders Broad Leaved', 'Improved Monstrous Viroflay', 'Improved Thick Leaved', 'Improved Thick Leaved Viroflay', 'Large Leaved Viroflay', 'Thick Leaf', 'Large Round Thick Leaf Viroflay', 'Large Round Leaved Viroflay', 'Monstrous', 'Monstrous Viroflay', 'Round Viroflay', and 'Tempo'.
