Strawberry Spinach

         
 
18 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.

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.
