Red Vine Spinach

I used to play with these seeds when I was a child. It gives a red stain when the fruit (berries) is pressed and that sparks to a lot creativity during my childhood.

This vine is hardy and easy to grow. I often trim the whole plant and give it to my neighbours as they love this vegetable. I'm not so much of eating this spinach.

I did used it for Christmas decoration as I took these red vines and attached them on my staircase railing. (regret now why I didn't take those pictures)

Needs a good watering (but not wet /soggy soil), soil: humus-rich, sandy loam in full sun or semi shade.

Propagation: From seed or cuttings.
