Herb of the week: Tree spinach, Chenopodium Giganteum

This easy to grow herb has the double benefits of being lovely to look at and delicious to eat!

The leaves of this quick growing annual have striking, magenta coloured stems and make an unusual ‘cut and come again’ crop.

Tree spinach imageThe tender, young leaves are great in salads, while the more mature leaves can be used as you would ‘ordinary’ spinach- we love them lightly steamed and finished with butter and a twist of pepper.

Best positioned at the back of a border or bed as it can reach up to 2m in height – tree spinach seeds freely too, giving you plants for years to come!

All the plants featured in our 'Herb of the Week' section are available from St Kitts Herbery, Camelford at the time of publication. Please phone us to check availability at other times of the year.
