Strawberry Spinach | Chenopodium Capitatum
Strawberry spinach is an herbaceous annual that produces gently toothed, spade-shaped leaves and berry-like red fruits on long spindly stems. It can reach heights of one meter and is entirely edible from roots to seeds.
The tender leaves are slightly thinner than traditional spinach varieties, with a similar taste and slightly earthy finish. The mildly sweet-tart berries are dense clusters of small seedy vesicles, similar to that of a mulberry.
Underground, the parsnip-like tap root is sweet and crisp, marbled with streaks of beet red and white.
