The Basella is an edible perennial (lives for several years), best suited to outdoor conditions.
It is widely used as a leafy vegetable in Asia and Africa, and has been used to make curries, dals and soups for generations!
The deep red colouring in the stems and leaves will compliment other green outdoor plants beautifully. The plant needs very strong light, and well draining soil. Keep well watered, but don't let it stay soggy.
Pot size 9.5cm, with metal ring attached to help the vine grow.
