Callaloo is a common vegetable in many Caribbean and African cuisines, especially Jamaica. With a distinct and rich flavour, it is also packed full of nutrients, making it a perfect superfood to include in your diet. This particular variety produces callaloo with red leaves and stems.
It is a very self-sufficient crop. They enjoy warmth and humidity, so they should only be planted out when temperatures are consistently warm. They enjoy full sun. Callaloo requires a rich, well-draining soil. Add an organic compost or manure to enrich soil before planting.
