Climbing Spinach

My best ever Christmas present this year was a plant.
A simple $4 plant.
It's a Climbing Spinach (Basella Rubra) that climbs 2 metres.
Edible climber with succulent red stems and green foliage. High vitamin and iron content. Suited for salads, stew and stir fries. Maturity 10-12 weeks. Pick as needed.

I've planted it next to a 2m stake and already it is heading up the pole.
Also a bonus - it will have nice pink flowers.

A simple gift that will give me much pleasure.
