Cant see the pics
every time someone says were eating spinach i find it hard to believe. all dictionaries translate bayam as spinach and i even saw a dubbed Popeye cartoon that was using the word bayam. this is the stuff im talking about here....
but i have always known spinach to look like this from back home....
so can anyone enlighten me to this mystery? i have not seen spinach anywhere in indonesia except in a can in the rare supermarket.
This is what you're used to? Only kidding....
What they have here, is what we call in Dutch, KLAROEN or Hanenkam (had to look it up: Celosia or Cockscombs in English?). a plant from the same family but it has a stronger taste and the plant needs higher temperatures to grow. There are even red varieties.
You can buy the seeds in Europe, they do grow in colder climates:
Also it's called Chinese or Lagos spinach. Why I don't know, when I bought seeds at the time it said it was a South American plant but just now I read it's originally from Africa.
There are so many different kinds of spinach outside of America for example therefore it may be difficult to find the same type of spinach one had back home
Stealing ideas from: one person is plagiarism, from many people is research, from everyone is China
The second photo to me looks more like, in Spain we call it Acelga, I use the translator and say Swiss chard!!!!
I think the photo from Thzho are the spinach I know!!
I am in Spain now for a few months and I miss so much the variety of green vegetables from Indonesia!!! Here I only can find spinach and swiss chard. We got use to eat vegetables everyday with our rice in Indonesia and here is getting too boring eats all the time the same green vegetables!!!!
We love spinach!!
Overcoming poverty is no a gesture of charity is an act of justice the protection of a fundamental human right to dignity..
