Strawberry Spinach (C. capitatum)

$3.00

This native annual grows wild throughout Minnesota, as well as much of North America and Europe. Also known by the common name strawberry blite.

90 days for berries, earlier for leaves. An edible ornamental. Tender arrow-shaped leaves and shoots taste like spinach. Cascades of showy but seedy berries ripen to bright red and have a bland taste similar to mulberries. Enjoys cooler weather, but is more heat-tolerant than spinach. Let it bolt for the berries, and look forward to volunteer plants the following spring.
