Fantastic Spinach

What are the pros? easy to grow

What are the cons? germinated a bit slowly

Review:

Will keep your salads going after lettuce bolts. Gorgeous, substantial heart-shaped leaves that rabbits have left alone! Grew it along a 4' fence and let the vines grow over hydrangea. Many blessings to the kind salesman who suggested it to me.

What are the pros? Beautiful vining plant

What are the cons? Tastes like Dead Nettle

Review:

Planted this in Zone 6. It took a while to get going, since it has been excessively rainy and cloudy all spring and summer. Pests seem to leave it alone and it is a beautiful plant. In a sunny spell it took off like a rocket. It tastes exactly like the way dead nettle smells. It would probably be good mixed with other greens in a salad but alone, not my favorite. I do not like bitter or strong greens, so if you do, you would probably like this. It is not a strong or bitter taste, just different.

Malabar spinach hack
Easy to Grow 5.0
EarlyMaturity 3.0
 

What are the pros? Easy to grow

What are the cons? Messy seed pods.

Review:

I was having difficult to find the seeds at beginning go the season. Now, I know about this site, I will definitely keep it in mind next year. Instead, I went to a Asian grocery store and pick up the vegetable shoots, stuck them in a pot. It has been 2 weeks and they still look green and has grown a bit, slowly. I think they are going to make it. I also put some of the shoots in water and they also developed roots. I thinks it is a successful hack!

What are the pros? Color, texture, taste

What are the cons? Slow start

Review:

This is our 2nd year growing this, it's a bit slow to come up in our region (6B) but once it gets about 6 inches tall it takes right off then and bushes out in a hurry. The nice thing is, it loves the heat. We've above 110? heat for the last 3 weeks or so and its gone nuts! The taste is great, it does have a hint of spinach flavor but it was the texture that threw me at first because it has a watery middle to it but the kids like. It is great in salads though, we've never tried it cooked. Definitely something I'm keeping every year.

What are the pros? Beautiful, easy clean/freeze

What are the cons? not as tasty raw

Review:

One of my favorite plants. Even if I didn't like the taste, I'd grow it as an ornamental. Lovely burgundy vines with heart shaped glossy dark green red-veined leaves, interesting purple berries. Abundant producer through hot summer when normal spinach is gone. Easy to wash flat leaves and stack for freezing. Good for folks who can't have regular spinach for medical reasons (Parkinson's patients, etc). We don't eat it raw, but use it in all our cooked spinach recipes. Especially pretty growing on a trellis with snake melons. Highly recommended.
