Easily the most beautiful vining edible green you can grow! Red Malabar spinach is a splendid edible ornamental, and it is extremely heat tolerant, providing gobs of nutritious greens while others have succumbed to the heat. This beautiful plant is not a true spinach but a different species (Basella rubra). This heat loving Asian vine has lovely red stems and delicious, succulent leaves that are great in salads, stir-fries and perfect for smoothies. The vines produce tons of deep purple berries. The flavor is fairly bland, however the color is an extraordinary purple. Super high in anthocyanin, excellent as a natural dye for fabrics and foods. A delicious green that can be grown as an annual in many areas or as a perennial in sub-tropical areas. Not frost hardy.
