Spinach Strawberry

Psst. We’re about to let you in on one of the best-kept secrets of the herb world. And no, we’re not talking about that herb. This is Strawberry Spinach and it’s about to change your life. It’s a Native American annual that grows tiny, deliciously delicate leaves that can be cooked like spinach or tossed fresh into salads. Plus, it produces red fruit in late summer and autumn that taste like mulberries. Plant and prepare to be mind-blown.

This variety’s berries grow at the base of each stem, and a plant in full fruit is a sight to behold. Wait until seeds are a dark burgundy before enjoying their sweetly unique flavour. As if this plant wasn’t already the best thing to happen to your garden, you can get a continuous crop of spinach by making successive plantings every 10 days.
