Thank you for the prompt delivery of the various plants and my chamomile lawn- I am looking forwards to rolling on it once it's spread and settled and the sun decides to stay out! All the best Jo

This is a name we have chosen for a very old but little known vegetable. O or is it a fruit? A native of North America it is also claimed that it was cultivated by German monks over 400 years ago.

You grow this and eat it as you would spinach, but the surprise is to come! Very tiny at first, then day by day growing bigger in each leaf joint or axil of the plant appear strawberry-like fruit. Do not be too anxious to pick. Leave until they become dark crimson red, then pick. So sweet and delicious.

  • Sow thinly in ½" (1 cm) deep drills in rows 18" (45 cm) apart.
  • Thin plants to 10" (25 cm) apart when large enough to handle.
  • Alternatively raise in seed trays and transplant from May onwards.
  • 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 you would Spinach (which also contains oxalates).
