Grows like weed...('a weed' I should say)...it's nearly ten feet tall now and we've been eating it since June!
Will be a definate again for next year, it's milder than ordinary spinach which is nice for salads especially with that lovely pink colour, but when you cook it goes just green.

You're welcome. The 'proper' name's chenopodium giganteum if that's any help for buying seed.
