Strawberry Spinach Seed Pack (Chenopodium foliosum)
When to Sow: Spring
Ease of Germination: Easy
(Strawberry sticks; Leafy goosefoot) Not a true spinach but a distant cousin. Like spinach, the leaves can be eaten fresh or cooked. But the novel thing about this plant is that late in the season red, juicy strawberry or raspberry-like "berries" appear along the stems. These "berries" are quite edible, and the taste is a bit like mulberries. Try throwing them in salads just for fun. Easy to grow. Best sown directly in the garden in spring. Ht. 40-50cm/16-20".
