Basella rubra (Alugbati, Ceylon spinach)

April 4, 2013
Ottawa City, Ontario, Canada.

Last year, I planted these alugbati (this is what we call it in my hometown -Cebu, Philippines), Malabar spinach, Philippine spinach. It did well, and probably I will do it again this year. The stir fries, the salad and the neighbors who love the fresh bite.

Here are the collections of photos of my Basella rubra at different stages of its growth.
