Also known as Malabar or Ceylon Spinach. It isn't a true spinach, but its foliage does indeed resemble that green leafy vegetable. It is very hardy and the young micro leaves are great in salads and the older leaves for stir fries. It is a good climber and needs support. At the end of the season it produces lots of purple seeds which easy propagate. The seeds are also good as a dye.
