Strawberry Spinach  

From seed retailers website:

Strawberry Spinach a.k.a. Beetberry, Strawberry Blite, Chenopodium capitatum – Salad~Dessert in one plant! This is a very rare ancient vegetable dating back 400 years! It was rediscovered at old monasteries in Europe. It is similar to Lamb’s Quarters in habit, although smaller. Grows 1 1/2 Feet high. Triangular, toothed leaves are thinner than spinach, very nutritious and high in vitamins. The tender shoots are used in salads or cooked like spinach. But the real surprise is that at each leaf axle there is an abundance of sweet, strawberry-like fruits which some say resemble mulberries. Will reseed vigorously.

Seeds for 2006.
