SPINACH-STRAWBERRY (Chenopodium capitatum)
This relatively unknown and unusual herb was grown by German Monks
over 400 years ago and rediscovered in a monastery in Europe.
The very showy compact 45cm plants are grown for their very nutritious triangular
leaves and interesting strawberry like fruits. Tender shoots and leaves are high
in vitamins A and C and are used raw in salads or cooked like spinach. Shiny red
fruits are juicy and tasty when mature and can be added to salads or used for dying.
Flowering in summer, its easy to grow, enjoys full sun to part shade and should
be watered as needed.
