Our Feedback

Thank you for the prompt delivery of excellent trees; that have their pride of place in our son’s garden. We thought it a far better wedding present than duplicate of other things.:) Many thanks.

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 gorgeouslysweet.

  • Plant out 10" (25 cm) apart in rows 18" (45 cm) apart.
  • Grows to around 2 feet (60 cm) tall.
  • Whilst 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 you would Spinach (which also contains Oxalates).
Available from approximately late April 2015
