Tropical Vegetables

Katuk - 

Sauropus androgynus

One of the most popular leaf vegetables in Asian countries, katuk is high is vitamins, minerals, and protein. Also known as sweet leaf and star gooseberry, it is often used in stir fry and soups containing seafood. In addition, it is very good cooked with eggs.

Okinawa Spinach -

Gynura bicolor

Rich in iron, potassium, calcium, and vitamin A, okinawa spinach not only makes a gorgeous fresh salad, but also tastes wonderful. In Asia, it is paired with ginger and sesame oil in stir fry

Growing both plants will provide families with year round salad greens in hot climates. 
We sell both plants and leaves of both species.
