Malabar Spinach / Basella rubra

by Maureen Sullivan on April 17, 2014

Sun. 8 to 10 feet. This vigorous vine has glossy edible leaves, strong deep purple stems and finishes the season off displaying small, black , bead-like fruits.  Enjoy this vine for both its very ornamental qualities and its tender mild spinach flavored leaves.
