Mauka. Mirabilis expansa. I managed to grow two mauka varieties. Mauka blanca and mauka roja. I gave leaves to a friend of mine to try and eat them as spinach. He said they were moderately good and knowing him, if he says that, it means they are rather bad. I am trying to grow them through winter.

The idea is to protect them from the frost so they might flower in january/february in order to get seeds.

Mauka blanca

Mauka roja.
