What are the pros? the taste, juiciness,
What are the cons? slow to germinate
I live in zone 5b (Ontario). I decided to try this, because I LOVE spinach, but it refuses to grow for me!
This plant is QUITE slow to germinate, to the point where I was about to re-seed the area....It does grow a little slowly at first, but then takes off! long vines of many, many leaves.
I used it sparingly, because of another commenter's post about it being high in oxalic acid (worried about getting gout)... But I didn't have problems with gout while eating this...
I didn't find it bitter like others say, but it does have a slightly stronger flavor than spinach, if you plan on eating it raw.
LOVE this plant, and am so happy to be able to grow it again this season!
