I love to eat this but only certain supermarkets sell it. So after removing the leaves for preparing the soup, I planted the stems in my balcony garden. It is growing long and spindly as it does not get enough sun to grow. It is a climber and if you do not cut it back it will twine around the iron grilles of the balcony. This vegetable is called Malabar Spinach. See the cooked soup here.
