    Re: Valuable Vegetables

    Basella (Vine Spinach) – 24


    Site Characteristics
    Sunlight: full sun
    Part shade increases leaf size, but prefers hot weather and full sun.
    Soil conditions: tolerates damp soil
    Grows well in a wide range of soils, but prefers moist, fertile soils, high in organic matter, pH 6.5 to 6.8. Requires consistent moisture to keep from flowering, which causes leaves to turn bitter.
    Plant Traits
    Lifecycle: annual
    Grown as an annual, but is perennial in frost-free areas.
    Ease-of-care: moderately difficult
    In most of New York, you must start plants inside and transplant after danger of frost has passed. Requires trellising.
    Foliage colour: dark green
    Foliage texture: medium
    Shape: climbing / vine
    Special Considerations
    Special characteristics:
    Not native to North America - East Asia origins.
    Special uses:
    edible landscaping

    Basella (Vine Spinach) – 25

    Growing Information

    How to plant:

    Propagate by seed, cuttings

    Germination temperature: 65 F to 75 F

    Days to emergence: 14 to 21 - Scarify seed to hasten germination.

    Seed can be saved 4 years.

    Maintenance and care:


    Scarify seed (use a file, sharp knife or sandpaper to carefully cut through the tough seed coat) to speed germination, which may take 3 weeks or more.

    Wait until soil has warmed and space transplants about 12 inches apart.

    It is well-adapted to high temperatures, even into the 90s F and requires consistent moisture to keep from flowering, which causes bitterness in leaves.

    It requires trellis or other support for twining vine and can follow peas up the same trellis.
