Portulaca oleracea sativa

Succulent summer salad plant.  Add the leaves to salads for a mild, crisp and juicy bite. They are very nutritious - high in vitamins, minerals and antioxidants. They also contain unusually high levels of omega-3 fatty acids for a salad green. The level of acidity in the leaves fluctuates throughout the day, making them more sour first thing in the morning, so harvest them according to the flavour you like. The flowers can also be eaten. Pick to within 5cm of the base and new stems and leaves will regrow.  Frost tender. The plant  accumulates calcium, phosphorus and iron. Plant 10cm apart. 9cm pot. Cerified organic plant.
