Okinawan Spinach (Gynura, Hung Tsoi, Suizenjigusa, Handama)

Okinawan Spinach is a vegetable that grows in sub-tropical climate. It can easily be grown in a pot or a container, as it is a fast growing dense, non-vining shrub.  It has edible leaves that are shiny green above and a beautiful purple below.  The plant is a very good friend to butterflies in Hawaii and can act as a host to the Kamehameha butterfly.

It is often grown and eaten for its medicinal properties as it is thought to lower cholesterol.  It also contains a good amount of vitamin A and protein.

 

Prepping and Eating Tips

– Always wash and dry your Okinawan spinach well before eating.

– It is most often eaten raw – added to sandwiches, salads, pizzas.

– When cooked it can take on a slightly slimy consistency (that’s good for you!) so most often it is cooked with other leafy greens.

– It can also be added to soups and stews.

 

Selecting and storing

For best eating harvest/select tender shoots and leaves.

Store in the refrigerator unwashed in bag or sealed container for up to 4 days.

 

P.S.: 

Okinawan Spinach can be easily propagated through cuttings and grown in containers.  They do best when consistently harvested (pluck leaves and eat daily).
