Malabar Spinach - Green (Cutting) 3/10

Luong21's Edible Fruits
Update: 816 days 7hrs

Comments: -

This plant is the best performing out of the others, I had started some from seed and some from cuttings. In the tropics these are perennials but here in Melbourne the are treated as annuals. The plant in the photo is my best performing and is 3 months old and I will never grow this again, it grows too slow and is probably more suited for the subtropics and tropics plus once cooked it has slimy taste. If you live in the subtropics and tropics it's great but in the warm temperate region aramanth spinach is better and much faster growing.
