Has anyone grown strawberry sticks and what are they like.

I've also bought Tomatillo's for the first time, has anyone grown these...

    Zoomer I know what Tomatillos are, think someone once "spoke" about them on here, but don't know what strawberry sticks are.

    I don't. I bet they're nearly as unpleasant as those old sweet cigarettes

    Ah, but the 'sweet tobacco' was yummy - shredded coconut coated with cocoa and brown sugar I think!

    Rings a bell nut now you mention it - I grew chenopodium 'strawberry sticks' from T&M seeds about 10-15 years ago.  Can't say they tasted much of anything and haven't grown them since.  Maybe it's me, but those, tomatillos and cape gooseberries just seemed very bland compared to more traditional fruits.

    Must have been having a reckless moment when buying seeds... any views on the merits of Purslane and Okra...or are these going the same way as asparagus peasimage
