Him, maybe this isn't so bad...When I lived in Hawaii, a neighbor gave me seeds to plant and called it Chinese spinach. I have been searching for this continuously producing plant and the closest I've found in the looks department was basella alba (green malabar spinach). However, the plant never produced the small, white, bulb-like flowers or dark berries. The stem on malabar seems thinner and this plant had a tendency to creep, not climb. Having a fleshy stem it produced small yellow flowers and had hard (nearly tooth shattering) spikey seeds that would grow in the nooks of the shoots and leaves. Though the pictures of New Zealand spinach seem to have fuzzy, triangular leaves, the flowers look similar. Does this Genus have a species with rounded leaves similar to malabar spinach?
