Ceylon Spinach
Basella spp
Syn. Climbing Spinach, Malabar Spinach, Indian saag, espinaca basela, baselle, vine spinach.
There are two varieties of this attractive, climbing leafy green, rich in vitamins A and C, iron and calcium. It can be eaten raw in salads or lightly cooked in stir-fries. It has a flavour similar to spinach. The older leaves develop a 'slipperiness', this mucilaginous property has been used traditionally as a thickening agent for soups and stews. It is perennial in the tropics and is native to tropical Asia. It can be grown as a warm season annual in cooler areas. Strangely enough, records show it was being cultivated in gardens in Scotland in 1689. It is useful over summer as it copes much better with heat than ordinary spinach. It likes to grow in full sun. We find it works well on a tripod trellis and it looks good in a hanging basket.

Warrigal Greens UT
Tetragonia tetragonioides
Syn. New Zealand Spinach.
Warrigal Greens are a long-lived, spreading, green vegetable, native to Australia and NZ, with fleshy, succulent, triangular leaves. It is extremely hardy and resistant to pests and disease. It is also heat, drought and light frost tolerant. It is best steamed quickly as the high vitamin C content becomes more readily available and the oxalate content is reduced. Grow in full sun, in a loose, well-drained soil, mulch well. Self-sows readily. Sow spring and summer, autumn in warmer frost-free areas. Long lived in temperate areas only. This is a 'must-have' plant for arid areas, where it should grown in the shade, if possible.
