What are the pros? Reliable source of greens

What are the cons? None

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.

What are the pros? ?

What are the cons? very tiny seeds, hard to sow

Review:

I had tried to grow these when we lived in Kansas during a drought and they would not come up. I thought once we moved to Michigan with all the rain we get, I would have better luck. Nothing doing. Seeds are almost microscopic and if there is the slightest breeze they will fly out of the packet. Tried to direct sow in the garden, not a single one came up. I guess they just aren't for northern Michigan

What are the pros? Fun to collect the berries

What are the cons? none

Review:

Like a few have said, once they grow they will come back every year. I look forward to picking the berries... Which have a semi-sweet beet-like flavor. I absolutely can't wait till they berry up again this year. One line of advice: these are easier to sow directly in the ground than to start indoors. This is a great experimental plant for a creative cook.

What are the pros? Flavor and color

What are the cons? small plants, not always liked

Review:

I love this little plant. We are zone 3-4 and I grew them in the tunnel. The greens taste like leaves, nothing special but the berry is like a strong spinach with a touch of sweetness. I spread them around and sold some at market with lots of samples. People either Absolutely loved them or hated them enough to spit them out. They are about 1/4 inch in size and I harvested about a palm full of berries per plant. Mostly I just snipped the whole stem and tossed it in the salads for nice color.

What are the pros? Others reviews

What are the cons? Never survived in my zone

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.
