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.

Review:

I planted this spinach as a transplant in early spring last year and we had an unusual amount of rain combined with our clay soils the plants failed to thrive and eventually drown. I didn't think much about them again. Tilled everything under in the fall and again this spring and then I was very surprised to see them come up as volunteer plants! They climbed up my tomato cages and produced beautifully all summer. Very unique texture for spinach but delicious.

What are the pros? Easy to grow - likes heat

What are the cons? Tastes better cooked than raw

Review:

Malabar Spinach is easy to grow and loves humidity and heat. I've also found edible Amaranth is worth growing in the hot south - here is a blog post on my experience with those two. http://earthlychow.com/vegetable-greens-hot-humid-summer-malabar-spinach-edible-amaranth

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
