Strawberry Spinach

         
 
21 Reviews | Write a Review
 
 
(Chenopodium capitatum) An old-fashioned plant that dates back to 1600 in Europe. This curious plant produces greens that are picked and cooked like spinach, but it also produces attractive, mildly-sweet red berries. 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.

What are the pros? Decorative

What are the cons? Do not care for the taste

Review:

I grew these one year for the novelty. I did not care for the taste of the leaves or berries, although if I was a salad lover, these would be beautiful in salads. In my mixed flower bed, the berries really stand out and they have self-seeded for several years and are spreading. I love things I only have to plant once, and they are easily removed if they are in the way of something. I enjoy browsing on the berries and even leaves; they're a novelty for visitors and they seem really pest-free. Although I was initially unimpressed, they have definitely grown on me.

What are the pros? Pretty plant, pleasant taste

What are the cons? Very few germinated

Review:

These came up and looked like they were going straight to seed, but then they turned pink. The berries taste like raw squash to me with a very unusual texture. I have read reviews that said they taste like mulberries. I have mulberries and they arent even close in taste. The smalll leaves were good in salads. I think I'll grow it again just for the unusual plant.

Review:

This is my second year with this plant in my small city garden. The berries are plump and slightly sweet and a joy to eat and look at. I eat them as a snack while I’m the garden and add them to my salads. I incorporate the greens often in my saut?ed breakfast greens. I love this plant!

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.
