Organic Strawberry Spinach
Organic Strawberry Spinach "Faster"
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.
