70 days. 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 and stir-fries. A delicious green that can be grown as an annual in many areas or as a perennial in sub-tropical areas.

EarlyMaturity 2.5
 

What are the pros? I love the taste. Easy to grow

What are the cons? Doesn't grow all year!!

Review:

I got the seeds last year and shared some with my brother in Tennessee. He has an organic garden that he has worked for years...with lots of Goat poop so the spinach really grew for him. His family and friends all loved it. I enjoy eating it raw and juicing it. From the reviews, I will have to try drying it out this year. I started some this spring in my grow room just to make sure the seed was good and it sprouted 100 percent. In fact, these plants are doing so well that I transplanted them to their own pots and am planning to put them out soon. I also have lots of them sprouting from where they grew last year. I like the taste of it even if the leaves are large. I planted one plant in a more shaded spot in soil that wasn't worked much and that plant did nothing the whole year. The plants that really took off for me had a lot of organic matter and manure in it. Here is a video I did of my first year...If that is allowed: https://youtu.be/U0JsMbPocYw

Malabar Spinach is amazing

What are the pros? Delicious, resembles spinach

What are the cons? Gotta pinch off flowers

Review:

This grows easy in the tropics of Hawaii. I've also grown it on So. Florida. It is the closest in flavor to leaf spinach that grows in colder climates. In Hawaii, it grows very rapidly and produces large, succulent leaves. This season, I began pinching the many flowers off in hopes that more energy would be devoted to green, leave growth. This plant will forever be in my garden. It's delicious and nutritional. I recommend it in sub- and tropical locations.

What are the pros? Plant colors and vibrance

What are the cons? Initially slow growing

Review:

Started outside in zone 6 in late May 2015. The plants didn't get full sun until about 11a.m., but then had full sun 7 hours a day. Began as a slow grower, but finally took off; that could have been because of the cold soil. Grew on a 4ft. trellis, but the vine put out another 2ft. of vine. Beautiful purple, colored, vines and the leaves were glossy. Used very little in salads, but used in stir fry regularly. The vines grew through the summer with temperatures reaching in the 90 deg. F. in the days with the nights into the 50s & 60s. Flower buds appeared Aug/Sept. but didn't open before I cleared the garden space out for the season. I will grow again in 2016, but will start the seeds inside and will try one plant in a pot to see if I can bring it into the house for the fall and winter...

What are the pros? nice vine

What are the cons? taste & texture

Review:

I grew malabar trying to get some greens during the brutal spring/summertime here in south florida. I was disaponted with the flavor and texture. Taste very much as grass and it feels like eating a some kind of succulent plant Doesn't deserve to be named spinach.
