(40 days) Open-pollinated. Also known as Winter Purslane and Miner’s Lettuce, it was the ’49ers green of choice, rich in calcium and vitamin C. Claytonia’s small heart-shaped leaves have a mild but succulent taste that we find attractive. We add it regularly to our mesclun. Barbara Damrosch says it “re-grows like crazy so you can get cut after cut off the same plant.” Cold-hardy through at least part of the Maine winter.

Additional Information

~160 seeds/g. ½ g packet sows 3 ft. Direct seed in spring, 24 per ft. Thin to 3" apart. Responds to cut-and-come-again culture and tolerates moderate frosts. For best quality, make at least one succession planting.


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.
