USDA Red is supposed to be good for fresh baby leaves, freezing and canning use. It has an even higher nutritional content than green spinach, containing betacyanin which is an even more potent anti-oxidant than anthocyanin. What a nice looking addition to a salad or pot of greens. And if you garden to add to your freezer or canning cupboard, this would be a colorful bonus.
Beauty and nutrition; a double home run. I wish I could grow some now to see how it tastes!
