Malabar is very similar to spinach in appearance, however, it is not technically a spinach.
We grow it here at the farm and most of our customers enjoy it. High in vitamin A, vitamin C, iron, and calcium. It is low in calories by volume, but high in protein per calorie. The succulent mucilage is a particularly rich source of soluble fiber.
Since it grows on a vine, it can get to tall to harvest, however, Irvin came up with a great idea to get to the tasty leaves. He tied a knife onto the end of a bamboo pole.
Use fresh or cooked. Great in stir-fries, omelets, and added to salads if cut into small pieces. It does have more of a gooey texture than regular spinach but when sauteed for a short time the goo decreases.
