Strawberry Spinach

         
 
16 Reviews | Write a Review
 
 
(Chenopodium capitatum) An old-fashioned plant that dates to 1600 in Europe. This curious plant produces greens that are picked and cooked like spinach, but it also produces attractive, red berries that are bland in flavor. These add a nice touch to fruit salads. Easy-to-grow plants are similar to "Lamb's Quarters", a wild relative. Found in a monastery garden

Review:

I planted these seeds June 10th - maybe too late in the year, but they took 6 1/2 weeks to finally emerge! I mainly grew this plant as a substitute for spinach since it can be grown during the summer. When I tried the leaves, they didn't really taste like spinach very much, but the leaves never become bitter, even in the hottest weather here. So I tried the berries. when the berries are a light red, they are interesting, with a hint of a perfumy taste. I didn't mind the taste. They had their own unique flavour and I didn't compare them with store bought berries. BUT when I tried the berries a week or so later, they were a dark red, burgundy actually, and they were delicious! They have their own unique sweet flavour. I have developed a wonderful liking to them so much that I now harvest them and juice them, leaves, stems and all, and its sooo delicious, I encourage you to try it. My husband is not totally a fan like I am, but it is worth a try. You may love them like I do!

Review:

I only grew one pot of these interesting plants, my nephew got a kick out of them! I actually forgot what they were and thought 'oh, they went to seed so soon' but then, a couple of days later, the seed pods/things turned into these beautiful and interesting red berries. The taste is pleasant, not like a strawberry, but look that way from afar, I can't imagine how much antioxidants are in those deep red colors!!!!

Review:

I grew this two summers ago and it was easy to grow and harvest. It was a colorful addition to my garden and I enjoyed eating it. I can see why some people think the flavor is not for everyone, but I like it. Try growing it and see if you like it. I am growing this again this year.

What are the pros? One of my favorites

What are the cons? some dislike the flavor

Review:

Super easy to grow, although it doesn't reseed very well in my garden. I've sold it at market and have found that samples are very necessary. People either love it or hate it. there's no in between. The berry tastes like a cross between spinach and beet with just a little sweetness but a good burst of juice. Best for salads or eating in the garden. The spinachy flavored leaves have a more lettuce texture and grow early with the lettuces. I continue to grow it and share it.

Review:

I bought a seed packet from Canadian Tire in the spring of 2007. Since then, strawberry spinach has grown in every area of my little garden, in between paving slabs, and in the planters where it is a useful, delightful and decorative inhabitant. In summer, I never buy spinach in the food shops because I have a perpetual source at home. I use the leaves in salads, in cooked eggy breakfasts, and in green smoothies. I use the ripe red seeds in beet smoothies. The stems and unripe seeds go into the compost. I love this plant.
