Has anyone ever grown this? One of the other lads on the allotments is trying it for the first time this year?

Apparently it is an heirloom plant, the leaves can be eaten as an alternative to spinach and it produces small berries that have a faint strawberry flavour

Never tried it myself although I know someone who grew it but wasn't bowled over by it - info here http://blog.smartgardener.com/plant-profiles/strawberry-spinach

Thanks Dove, I'll be interested to see how they turn out for him. At first I thought he was a couple of days early on an April 1st joke

New one to me, would be interested to hear what it's like if you grow, or taste some.
