Malabar spinach grows on a vine, and the purple-red stems and tiny pink flowers of this variety make it so beautiful, that it is often grown for ornamental purposes! While not a true spinach, the nutritious, succulent leaves look and taste similar to its namesake. This is a heat loving plant that provides leafy greens all through the warmer months. Enjoy Malabar spinach leaves as you would a regular spinach, either raw or cooked.
