Tropical Spinach ID??

(1/2) > >>

Caribbeangrower:







Can someone ID this tree spinach? Would like to know the species ID. Thank you. In my country, they call it Indonesian spinach. IDK if that helps.

Pokeweed:
It may be a form of chaya. The other possibility is abelmoschus
Manihot.

Caribbeangrower:
Thanks for your help. Itís abelmoschus manihot. See website for reference. The leaves are delicious.

pineislander:
There are several leaf forms and color variations of the abelmoschus, even a variegated type. I spent the '80's at Estate Northside, Fredericksted near Butler's Bay.

RodneyS:
I believe it is the Auntie Lilli variety of bele (abelmoschus manihot)
