Dear team, my Shirley Giant Onions are growing like mad - all my mates are asking how I grow them so big.I told when I received them as plants I followed your instrutions and just sat back and watched them grow. So I gave them your email. Can't wait to taste them. Be in touch again.

Blitum capitatum, Chenepodium capitatum

  • Eat like Spinach.
  • Grows strawberry-like red fruits to develop.
  • Also known as the Beetberry or Strawberry Spinach.

Supplied as compost block-grown plants.

Available from APPROXIMATELY April 2020

5 or more £1.19GBP each. Group & quantity discounts
Qty:

Whilst it is thought this plant originated in North America it has been documented as being grown in Europe for many years.

You grow and eat this as you would Spinach. But the real fun and interest comes from the fruits that develop between the leaf axils; these swell to the size of a woodland strawberry - and once they have deepened in colour to a rich red are gorgeously sweet.

  • Plant out 10" (25 cm) apart in rows 18" (45 cm) apart.
  • Grows to around 2 feet (60 cm) tall.
  • Usually grown as an annual it can overwinter if weather is not too severe as it is perennial in habit.
  • Whilst the leaves can be eaten raw, they should be eaten in moderation as they contain oxalates - which are destroyed by cooking as with Spinach (which also contains oxalates).
