Review:

Its hard to know what will grow well in hawaii, our zones arent exactly easy to figure out. Our seasons are different as well as our bugs. We are in a rat lung worm slug area so growing lettuce and spinach is too risky so I picked this up. I love it. So far no bugs have bothered it! I grow everything in 5 gallon buckets because of wild pigs and it likes the bucket. I enjoy it in stir fry and saimin basically anywhere I would put green veges. I dont notice any.pungent taste or smells from it, its very neutral but I enjoy it. The first berries are just starting to form. I would definately recommended it for a beginning gardener.

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.
