The flavor does seem as (was) advertised by Burpee as having excellent flavor - if you can get it to germinate. Over a 3-year period we had mixed-to-poor results with even indoor seed starting, perhaps typical for Spinach in general. But it seems this cultivar is even more fussy.

A 44 day savoyed hybrid. Did not do well in fall planting. Plants that did survive seem to be doing well in Mid February. May be due to extraordinary drought in summer and fall.
