Ntshuab rog / okinawa spinach

Postpartum soup use

This is Okinawa spinach (Ntshuab rog.) There are two that we use in our chicken soup. The other one is green and has broad or roundish leaves are New Zealand spinach.  This is the one I have currently in my garden.

Medicinal use

I am not aware of any at the moment besides it’s good for blood flow after birthing. They look different but they are the same plant. The red Okinawa on the left is in the shade in California and the one on the right is with me in Arizona.

I propagated from the same plant. The AZ one is in full sun and shade only in the summer where the temperature might reach up to 120 degrees F.
