Strawberry Spinach

         
 
27 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? N/A

What are the cons? Didn't grow well

Review:

I planted this in a raised bed heavily amended with manure and compost. It was planted alongside other spinach and lettuce. It came up, but failed to thrive unlike everything else in the raised bed. All the other varieties were prolific. This was not. I cannot comment on taste, or even the red berries, because it didn't make it that far.

What are the pros? Easy to take care of

What are the cons? Taste

Review:

I didn’t know this plant was edible until I read these reviews. I use the berries for all natural lip stain and blush, the color is beautiful on the skin. I have tasted the berries because I rub them on my lips to stain them, they are very juicy but they don’t taste great. I would never eat this plant. They grow wild where I live, and I have a lot of mature plants with very big berries. If I wouldn’t of discovered how great they are for cosmetic purposes then I would of never touched them.

What are the pros? Good price

What are the cons? Didn’t grow

Review:

I’ve had great luck growing from seed in my aerogarden. I planted kale, this spinach, sorrel, and lettuce. This spinach was the only one that did not grow. It germinated, but while everything else grew bigger and produced, the spinach stayed only about a inch tall. I will try it outside next year but I’m counting this as a loss.

What are the pros? Not much

What are the cons? Took forever to grow

Review:

I’m in the SF Bay Area, and thought this would grow well here but I was wrong. Planted in early April, and took almost 2months to sprout and my plants (maybe a dozen) resemble a short stubby weed that grows in my driveway cracks. Maybe I should wait longer for these “berries” to appear? Not impressed at all. But I have about15 seeds left, I will give it another go.

What are the pros? Easy to grow, I guess

What are the cons? Tasteless

Review:

So this does grow easily and I guess you could use the berry stalks in flower arrangements, but other than that I can't think of use for this plant. It looks just exactly like something delicious, but had zero flavor. I think the fact that it's a fairly attractive plant makes it even more disappointing- it just doesn't deliver. It does stay tender but that's the only nice I can think to say about it.
