This was my first time growing spinach and it was, without question, the crop that I had the most trouble with.
I grew three varieties of spinach – Monstrueux de Viroflay, Galilee, and Tyee - and I had problems with all of them. These issues ran the gamut from seeds not germinating (Viroflay), to seedlings bolting before or shortly after transplanting (Galilee), to spider mites (Tyee). And all of the varieties were decidedly sparse in their growth.
My overall favourite in terms of taste was Viroflay.
