Spinach grown in India

Mason, OH

My mother in law is from India. She often complains of the difference in vegetables here and there. For example she says that the spinach in India is a thinner leaf and creamier to eat.

Here in the US we know spinach to be a cool season crop...But they grow spinach all year in India she says and even in the south. This puzzles me and I assume it's a different variety.

I've been looking up spinach varieties in India... I've found they plant named varieties: Pusa Bharati and Pusa Jyoti, but I can't find a scientific name or any information to find an equivalent common name in English. (This website explains how it's a hot season crop??? )

I also thought maybe it was an alternative spinach like New Zealand Spinach?

Any ideas?
