Basella rubra / Malabar spinach Red
Malabar spinach is a climbing plant. It grows best in full sun. It prefers continuously moist soil and a PH level of 6.5 to 6.8. It can be grown in pots or in a garden with a trellis or up a wall. If the soil becomes dry it will flower and the leaves have a much more bitter flavor.
Malabar spinach can be grown from seed. To start from seed, plant the seeds indoors 6-8 weeks before the last frost in your area. Seeds should germinate in 10 days to 3 weeks. If you want to speed up your seedling’s growth, you can either soak them in water overnight before planting, or use a knife to open up the hard exterior seed coating.
