Basella alba, or Malabar spinach (also Phooi leaf, Red vine spinach, Creeping spinach, Climbing spinach) is a perennial vine from the tropics.  It grew in the summer of 2010 up a south facing screen, and was the picture of health, yielding a significant amount of stiff glossy leaves, delicious in summer salad.
