Description

Malabar spinach (also called pui or Indian spinach) is cultivated all throughout the tropics as a vegetable plant. But even in Central Europe it can be grown quite easily, for example as a potted plant. Its nutritious leaves taste good and can also
be used to thicken sauces (Simply add a leaf of malabar spinach while cooking).

Content: about 20 pui spinach seeds
Sowing and cultivation

Start malabar spinach indoors in mid-April and plant the seedlings out after the last frost. Either put them in a warm place outdoors or in pots on a terrace or balcony. The plant needs some support for the high climbing vines, for example bean poles, a trellis or some wires. Basella alba is perennial and can be overwintered as a container plant in a frost-free location. Loves sun, plenty of water and nutrients.
