Malabar spinach is the closest taste to spinach, for me at least. It's tropical, totally opposite of spinach. Indoors it's a beautiful ornamental, also. It's an incredibly easy plant, as long as it's really warm. And while it likes a lot of water, I've found it to be extremely drought tolerant, more so than almost anything I've grown. Drought will speed up flowering, though. If you don't constantly pick it once it gets going, it will grow like crazy, bloom its beautiful flowers and reseed prolifically. You'll never have to buy the seeds again if you save some!
