Malabar Spinach will tolerate shade. It is also grown as an edible landscape plant. It can be grown up a trellis to create a beautiful privacy fence up to six feet tall. The large green leaves and red stems lend visual interest to any landscape. While it is a perennial, it is not frost tolerant, so those living in cooler climates may want to consider growing it in a pot, a greenhouse, or under a cold frame.

Safe Seed Pledge

Safe Seed Pledge Logo

Agriculture and seeds provide the basis upon which our lives depend. We must protect this foundation as a safe and genetically stable source for future generations. For the benefit of all farmers, gardeners and consumers who want an alternative,

We pledge that we do not knowingly buy, sell or trade genetically engineered seeds or plants.

The mechanical transfer of genetic material outside of natural reproductive methods and between genera, families or kingdoms, poses great biological risks as well as economic, political, and cultural threats. We feel that genetically engineered varieties have been insufficiently tested prior to public release. More research and testing is necessary to further assess the potential risks of genetically engineered seeds. Further, we wish to support agricultural progress that leads to healthier soils, genetically diverse agricultural ecosystems and ultimately healthy people and communities.
