Grown in Europe for centuries, Strawberry Spinach is a showy compact plant that is favored for its nutritious triangular toothed leaves and savory fruits. Self seeding. (45 days)
Each packet contains approximately 250 seeds.
Planting and Harvesting Tips:
Sow directly into beds as soon as the soil can be worked in early spring. Plant no deeper than 1/4 inch in rich, well-drained soil. Space plants 4-6 inches apart in rows 20-24 inches apart. Grows easily in full sun or partial shade.
Both the leaves and berries of this “old-fashioned” plant are delicious. Trim off the tender shoots and use raw or cooked. Shiny red strawberry-like berries can be eaten fresh or used to prepare preserves.
