Easy to grow and does not normally bolt in the first year like true spinach does.
When it does go to flower it can be 2m high and 1.5m wide so it tends to get replaced before it sets seed.
Worth growing for the kitchen or pet food.

Planted mine last spring and it cropped through the winter and is going really strong now. Some thicker flower stalks but I cut them out (and eat them). Will plant some more when they get scrappy.
