malabar-tallThis beautiful vine is our climbing spinach we planted this past April. It’s not really spinach but the leaves look like and taste a lot like spinach. It is delicious fresh or steamed. Basella rubra aka Malabar spinach is a fast growing edible vine found in temperate climates around the world.  It loves spring summer and fall temps but not so much colder weather.

As you can see it’ll climb on anything, maybe even a person if you stand too close too long! Mark it on your calendar to plant some next spring; we’ll be getting it in a 4″ pot!
