The listing, ~ Malabar ~ Red Vine Spinach, Basella rubra has ended.

70 days. This beautiful plant is not a true spinach but a different species (Basella rubra). A heat-loving Asian vine that has lovely red stems and delicious green leaves. Can be grown as an annual in many areas or as a perennial in sub-tropical areas.

The succulent leaves and stem tips are rich in vitamins A and C and are a good source of iron and calcium. They may be eaten raw in salads, boiled, steamed, stir-fried, or added to soups, stews, tofu dishes, and curries. Or you can use them as a filling for quiche, omelets, savory turnovers, and potpies.

A thing of beauty -- propagation from seed is a snap. Happily, the red-stemmed cultivar of Malabar spinach comes true from seed. Saving seed is easy too. Simply dry the entire ripe fruit and use it for planting the following year.

P.S. BEWARE OF ROSE SEEDS! There's a reason why we don't see rose seeds sold in big garden centers. More info here;

Also beware of home collected seeds from hybrid plants. They're no longer the same variety. Ask questions. Research >reliable< sources. Learn to succeed in your gardening efforts!

Thirdly, a GREEN bell pepper is an UNRIPE bell pepper & isn't likely to provide VIABLE seeds. There are very few varieties that produce bell peppers that ripen to green. Same for GREEN Jalapeno & most other pepper varieties. It only take minutes to check the variety & discover the color of the RIPE pepper.

Apple seeds? Mercy! Don't get me started!
