Basella rubra var Red Malabar
Large, mild-flavored green leaves with scarlet stems look terrific climbing up a trellis or fence ! It is also a great indoor plant in a hanging pot.The thick, dark green leaves of this edible ornamental provide tasty greens throughout the summer, when traditional spinach will not grow. The mild flavor makes Red Stem equally good cooked or fresh, with a slight citrus or acidic flavor. The leaves are thick and can handle heat, but are similar to cooking with okra in terms of the thickness it creates when cooked (some say slimy) Heat-loving and vigorous, these attractive plants reach 6 feet or more if trained on a trellis, lamp post, or any vertical structure with some porousness for twining. Great ornamental as well.
