Purslane Golden Organic Seeds

Purslane Golden Organic Seeds

Portulaca oleracea sativa

Item #6130

Annual. This domesticated purslane with large, succulent leaves contains vitamins A and C, a variety of minerals, and omega-3 fatty acids. Though similar to wild purslane in its high nutritional value, it is not your garden-variety weed. Golden Purslane grows relatively tall for easier harvest, and its flavor is less tangy. A good container variety, and a fabulous way to expand your salad greens selection!
