What are the pros? leaves never bitter. berries!
What are the cons? Took forever to germinate-
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!
