    Claytonia and other greens

    Mon Mar 25, 2013 10:06 pm Groupie
    Has anyone tried growing Claytonia? I was wondering what it tastes like. I don't like really bitter greens. I'm looking for something a little mild in taste but easy to grow and really nutritious. I looked at vegetable amaranth but didn't know what it would be like.

    I wonder if you might like basella/Malabar spinach/Ceylon spinach. It thrives in hot weather, is a beautiful vine that has pretty flowers, and goes strong all summer long, once it finally gets going. It's great for edible landscaping. I like the red-stemmed variety, it's gorgeous.

    That is very pretty. Is it a true spinach? Spinach gives my sister migraines.

    No, spinach doesn't vine and is a cool-weather crop. Basella is tropical and definitely needs a trellis or other support.

    Thanks SO much for the great tip, Z! I looked this up on my fave heirloom seed site ( and YES they have it. For $2.50 you get 50 seeds which is MORE than enough. And I can surely see this taking off in our hot-hot summer. I can't wait to try this and yes, it is pretty too. Have you tried saving seed for the following year? Thanks!!

    No, I haven't saved any of the seed. I haven't grown it since we moved to New Mexico, got some seed to try here this year, hope it does as well in the desert under irrigation as it did in New York.
    Another thought: beet greens. I love them, plus you get the beet root, so it's a great eat-it-all crop. Beets and chard are cousins, so if you like chard, you'd like beet greens.

    I bought some bull's blood beet seeds to try and I was told the greens are wonderful.
