Chinese Spinach (Amaranthus gangeticus)

A plant used in much the same way as spinach (only with smaller leaves) and grown in India and South-East Asia. The plant is easily grown, but needs a good summer to flourish in Britain. The leaves are better picked when young, but older stalks can be peeled and eaten like "Good King Henry". See Amaranth.
