Strawberry Spinach

         
 
8 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:

This is my first year rare seed gardening from seeds. These started to sprout , very tiny, but died quickly. Never came up. I used a raised bed garden in February ( zone 9a very hot here) and old horse manure. Not sure why they did not take. I have a few seeds left over to try again next year. I really like the reviews , so I know this must be operator error , I am not a seasoned gardner, and I live in a place where it's 110-120 degrees from June to Sept.

Bought my seeds from Baker's years ago, still reseed themselves every year, berries are bland but add great color to salads. Easy growing for any level gardener.

What are the pros? Plant once, have forever.

Review:

The berries on this had more flavor than I was expecting. I never got around to cooking the leaves, so I do not know if they cook like spinach. Raw I think raw, spinach has better flavor and texture. But this is definitely edible. Like someone else mentioned this plant would be great for hard times because it grows like a weed.

Review:

Planted in Spring 2012. Barely grew all summer. Plants and shoots with berries were miniscule. Fast forward to Spring 2013, one of the earliest plants to grow in Minnesota. A halo of baby plants around original site. Basically just about every dropped seed turned into a plant. Greens are fine. Berries are tasteless with bad texture. Kind of neat to have around, especially so early, but unremarkable in all other facets.

Review:

I started these from seed where I am in northern Maine. They germinated great and were easy to tend. I planted them in a hanging pot where they did great!! Lot's of green leaves that were very tasty! The "berries" taste just like strawberries and spinach together. I will grow more next year and put in hanging baskets on our front porch!
