150+ Giant Nobel Spinach Seeds
Spinach originated in ancient Persia, and reached the Mediterranean region by the 9th century. By the Middle Ages, spinach was known in England both for its medicinal properties and for salad greens. Catherine de Medici, the beautiful queen from Florence, loved this vegetable and required it to be served at every meal; ever since, dishes served with spinach have been known as “Florentine.” Thomas Jefferson helped introduce spinach to the United States by growing several varieties in his experimental gardens at Monticello. Giant Noble spinach won the prestigious AAS Award in 1933.
