Purslane Seeds, Golden, ORGANIC


Portulaca oleracia

While technically an herb, we eat Purslane as the powerhouse vegetable it is! A favorite of wild plant foragers, this delightful bright yellow-green succulent contains more omega-3 fatty acids than any other leafy plant. Has a slightly salty and sour taste, similar to lemons. Don't overlook this gem that can be prepared like spinach, eaten raw, or used in soups and stews.

Purslane can be sown indoors 3 to 4 weeks before your last frost date and transplanted after all danger of frost has passed. They can also be direct seeded. Needs full sun to part shade. Leaves can be harvested in about 50 days. A good candidate for cut-and-come-again greens. 0.2 gram packet contains approximately 540 seeds.
