Brazilian Sissoo Spinach

I planted this in a bad position where an asparagus soon completely covered it. It survived. After a year I moved it to a spot that is still shady but does get more light and it started thriving. Tastes great and super easy to grow cuttings.

BAMBAROO, QLD, Australia

A good year round supplier of leafy greens.  Good spinach substitute for tropical climate.  Should be cooked if consumed in large amounts due to oxalic acid content. Can be eaten raw in salads, etc but consumption should be restricted of the raw leaf...

Great replacement for spinach when it's to hot and lettuce and English spinach go to bolt. Growing great in a pot only need to water once a week. This has done great in Melbourne. I love it.
