First time I have ever tried to grow fruit, i.e. a relative novice. So you can imagine my surprise and delight when my Raspberries Polkas started to appear a couple of weeks ago (a month early!). Now growing in abundance and with a little bit of added sugar... "Absolutely delicious!!!!"

Despite being known under a multitude of 'Spinach' names - Malabar Spinach, Creeping Spinach, Climbing Spinach and Buffalo Spinach to name a few - this is not even related to Spinach!

We first grew this in 2000 and were so impressed with the quantity and quality of crop that could be produced from such a small area (as it grows vertically) that we decided to add it to our listings.

The rich green leaves resemble Spinach both in flavour and texture but are thicker and more fleshy, making it perfect not only for use as you would conventional Spinach but also for stir-fry's and similar.

The habit of the plant is to climb and so support is essential; we usually grow plants to around 8 feet (2.4 metres) tall, though in optimum growing conditions and with suitable support it can grow to up to 30 feet (10 metres or more)!

  • Sow into modules or small pots April - May, covering seeds with" (6 mm) of compost.
  • Germinate at a temperature of around 75F (24C).
  • When large enough to handle plant out into the border 9" (23 cm) apart, 3 per growbag or 1 per 12 litre pot.
  • Provide support such as as strings or a bamboo cane wigwam.
  • Originating from the tropics, Malabar Spinach requires a growing temperature of around 70F (21C) and so is best grown in a greenhouse, polytunnel or similar.
