Product description

Brazilian Spinach, also called Sissoo Spinach, is a low growing perennial growing as a compact mound to 30cm. If allowed to spread it may develop as a creeping ground cover in ideal tropical conditions.

It has a decorative rich green colouring and a crinkled or ‘bubbly’ leaf structure. In short, it looks like a salad green which is exactly how it is used in its native Brazil.

It is a good-tasting, wet-season, green leafy vegetable, without the slimy or mucilaginous texture and can also be used as a spinach alternative in cooking.

Use it steamed or stir-fried or in salad also,
