Malabar Spinach

Post  GloriaG on 2/20/2015, 11:28 pm

Hi Sanderson,

No I didn't think of it. 
Can it just be re-copied or does it have to be re-typed?
Thanks
Gloria

You can copy the contents and then just paste where appropriate, then add your title. Thanks

Audrey, Here is your Malabar spinach. It spent some time under runaway cantaloup vines. Not slimy at all.

malabar spinach, et al

Post  kauairosina on 8/21/2015, 9:25 pm

That looks more like Okinawan spinach, which is not slimy.  Our Malabar spinach has rounded leaves.  I'll try to remember to take a picture tomorrow or this evening.  Too doggone hot to go out their now.

Maybe this is from the New Zealand spinach seeds from Audrey. Supposed to be heat resistant. It tastes like spinach. I just assumed that the larger seeds were Mal and the smaller seeds were NZ. Embarassed

Thanks.  New Zealand spinach it is.  Could not remember the proper name.

I had never heard of these until someone asked about companion plants. Now I'm fascinated. Do you still have any of these seeds you'd like to swap for ??

I only have New Zealand. It survives heat and light freezes.

Malabar is slimy and vines up. NZ is like spinach and sprawls. See my photo above of NZ and Has' photo of Malabar on page one.

I couldn't get my New Zealand (Johnny's Seeds) spinach to germinate.

If I remember correctly, I put 2 NZ and 2 Malabar seeds in a square (from Audrey). Nothing, then one day there was a little NZ popping up. I didn't do any seed prep. Takes a while to germinate.
