Truly a welcome weed, purslane is the most significant leafy vegetable source of omega-3 fatty acids (one cup leaves = 300-400 mg. of alpha-linolenic acid). Also high in vitamins A, C and E, and many necessary minerals. But wait – that’s just the bonus – the succulent leaves and stems have a nice bite and a cooling lemony taste that is a perfect addition to summer salads, especially those cucumber/tomato combinations we rely on when the weather is too hot for lettuce. The well-known weed version spreads in low mats – this one stands upright to 18”, keeping stems clean and easy to pick.
Culture: Plant in late spring after frost; partial to full sun. Reseeds readily.

I'm a second time buyer, and the first batch sprouted nicely - can't wait to plant these! They arrived quickly.
