This hot weather plant provides handfuls of thick, succulent, green leaves that add a light lemony crunch to salads. Leaves are much larger than the wild type and the plant grows upright, not prostrate. An excellent source of natural antioxidants. Sow Garden Purslane Seeds indoors or out in late May when soil is really warm. It can be cut almost to the ground but keep two leaves at the base for re-growth. Purslane self-sows if allowed to flower. Try some purslane in a patio container and sprinkle the unusual leaves over summer salads.
Matures in 60 days. (Open-pollinated seeds)
