MALABAR SPINACH - GREEN
Grows well under full sunlight in hot, humid climates. Growth is slow in low temperatures resulting in low yields. It grows best in sandy loam soils rich in organic matter with pH ranging from 5.5 to 8.0. Leaves are high in vitamin A, vitamin c, iron and calcium. Malabar spinach may be used to thicken soups or as a leafy green in stir fries.
A green stemmed selection that does not seed as readily as the red.

Customer Comments on Malabar Spinach - Green
Malabar Spinach - Green
My ducks LOVE this green. I grow it in a large tub and keep it covered with chicken wire so only the leaves stick out as they grow, that way the plant can keep continuing to grow and feed everyone. Has a slight mucilaginous texture but nice to eat. | Julie - Lismore, NSW 31-May-2016
