Additional Information

Purslane

Portulaca oleracea var. sativa

Culture: Direct seed in spring, after danger of frost. Thin to 5" apart. Can be cut; will regenerate. We recommend a succession planting to maximize tenderness.

Its Latin name means ‘milk-bearing vegetable.’ Purslane leaves have more vitamin C than spinach leaves and are rich in omega-3 fatty acids and antioxidants.

Greens

Days to maturity are from direct seeding.

Culture: When to harvest greens? Research from trials conducted in England and Kenya showed looseleaf lettuce, red chard and arugula harvested in the evening had a longer shelf life than when picked in the morning.
