Organic Strawberry Spinach "Faster"

Chenopodium capitatum
 

Packet contains 250 mg (~500 seeds)

Not technically a spinach

Also called “strawberry blite” or “beetberry” for the red fruits that form at maturity. These are pleasantly sweet, but pale in flavor alongside a real berry. Leaves are the real crop here, spinach-green, triangular, and bite-sized with toothed margins, borne in an open rosette. A heat lover for summer salad; a beautiful curiosity in fruit. 

 

Wild Chenopodiums all have erratic seed germination, due largely to variable thickness of the seed coat. This strain has undergone several generations of selection for faster sprouting and faster growing seedlings. Farm Original Variety! OSSI (Open Source Seed Initiative) Pledged Variety.

Planting Tips for Heirloom Organic Spinach:

Spinach is a cool weather crop and can either be planted in spring or fall.  For a spring crop, be sure to start these vegetable seeds indoors 6-8 weeks before the last frost date so that they can be transplanted in very early spring.  For a fall harvest, these heirloom seeds can be directly sown.  For best results it is very important to keep soil evenly moist with regular light waterings. 

When direct seeding, you should plant these organic heirloom seeds 1-2" apart.  Once they have shown several true leaves and are about 4" tall, you should then thin to final spacing.  For continual harvests, stagger plantings every 2-3 weeks for delicous spinach all season long.

Seeding Rate: 32,000 plants/acre, aproximately 2 lb.

Organic Heirloom seeds are hardy but always take care with your garden seeds to give them the appropriate amount of moisture - not letting the vegetable seeds dry out prematurely or overwatering and possibly having them rot.
