Select a plant below to find out more: From the Literature:
|Mông toi is also known as malabar
spinach, Ceylon spinach, and climbing spinach. Mông toi is
not a true spinach, but its leaves, which form on a vine, resemble spinach
and are used in the same way. The plant thrives best during warm,
rainy periods. A small amount of shade seems to be beneficial, but
direct sunlight does not harm the plant. Mông toi can be grown
from seeds or cuttings. Because it is a climbing vine, it is useful to
create a trellis for it.
