Strawberry Spinach is one of the best-kept secrets of the herb world. A herb that dates back to the 1600s in North America and northern Europe, this annual sets tiny, deliciously tender leaves that can be cooked like spinach or used fresh in salads. It also sets small red fruits in late summer and fall that taste a bit like mulberries which are lovely fresh or canned. A delectable and useful plant, you’ll want it front and center of the herb garden! Strawberry Spinach sets new leaves all season long. The foliage is slender, deeply lobed, and appears in rosettes along long, slender stems. Quite small, they resemble small raspberries with a bright strawberry-red colour! The berries arise at the base of each stem and having berries on spinach plants is uniquely interesting! Direct sow Strawberry Spinach in full sun and rich, fertile soil. It reaches about 45 cm high and 30 cm wide. Easy and trouble-free.

Quick Facts

  • Open-pollinated

  • Does well in cool and hot weather

  • Easy to grow

  • Heirloom 1600s

  • Self seeding

Prepare moist soil in an area where there will be full sun. You can also plant in a large pot or container. If you live in a cooler climate, plant in early spring so you’ll have the leaves in mid-end of spring, and the berries in the summer. If you live in a warmer climate, plant in the fall for late fall/early winter leaves and berries in the spring. Sow directly in moist soil, about 2.5 to 5 cm apart and in rows 45-60 cm apart. Water regularly, and your strawberry spinach will grow on its own. Almost no care is required once established. Strawberry spinach is self-seeding though.  It will grow away in the same space to avoid this simply pull the plants/ berries to compost.
