Malabar spinach

Basella rubra

When regular spinach begins to fade in the heat of summer, it's time to start harvesting delicious Malabar spinach. It loves the heat. This vining plant can grow up to 8 feet long, so provide a sturdy trellis to clamber on. Bonus: The burgundy stems and heart-shape medium-green leaves make an attractive ornamental addition to the garden.
