An annual vegetable plant with unique charm, it combines the delights of spinach with the allure of strawberries. Its triangular leaves of deep dark green are ready to be enjoyed in salads or prepared like spinach, providing a refined taste experience. But that's not all! The slender stems bear small green flowers that transform into juicy red fruits with a sweet strawberry flavor.
It is an annual plant that self-seeds every year with fruits falling to the ground. This heirloom variety is also known as strawberry spinach.
This plant thrives under gentle sunlight, but it prefers to be sheltered from intense heat. A partially sunny corner of the garden, covered with mulch, will suit it perfectly.
Growing Strawberry Spinach is a breeze; just sow directly in rich, cool soil between May and August to enjoy a bountiful harvest throughout the season. The plant will develop stems measuring approximately 36 to 40 inches in length.
