Strawberry Spinach (Organic Heirloom 32 Days)


This ancient plant was re-discovered growing at old monasteries and is popular in Europe. Triangular shaped, bite-sized, saw-toothed leaves, have a spinach flavor and are great in salads. Let it flower and it produces slightly sweet, minute strawberry-like fruit at every leaf axle that adds a bright, unique decoration to salads. This plant is a real heat lover making it a supreme choice for greens in the middle of the summer season. An early planting from March still produces leaves here in August.

    Don't know

    Haven't used it yet, too cold in my area. Have not planted anything yet, way too cold. I am really behind. Try again in 2 months.

    Easy to grow

    Here in Northeast Wisconsin, Strawberry Spinach is incredibly easy to grow., which is not surprising since I first saw it growing as a **** in roadside gravel and thought it was so pretty, I wanted it for purely ornamental purposes. I can plant it in earliest spring (It doesn't freeze) and it does taste like spinach. But the leaves are small and harvesting the leaves is somewhat tedious. I can wait until the pretty red "fruits" appear on the vines and strip everything off the stems for stir fries or salads and they are tasty, but meanwhile it sets millions of seeds that self sow, and grow where you don't want them I think I will use them as fillers in container gardens for their beauty and an occasional meal so they can do double duty, but as your only source of so-called spinach, it would be disappointing. If you plant it for a fall crop, it does not produce any of those red berry-like things which are actually flowers and seed fruits. That way it wouldn't spread, and you can harvest them as miniature spinach plants.
