Description

The succulent leaves have a more subtle golden hue compared to Garden Purslane and are more tender although with a superior flavour and very popular in French cuisine. Raw the leaves have a a peppery tang which gives them a nice contrast to other salad leaves. Golden Purslane is high in natural antioxidants and apparently contains more omega-3 fatty acids than any other leafy vegetable plant. In antiquity, it was well-known for its healing properties and it was also considered to have powers of happiness, luck, love and sleep.

Sowing Advice

Broadcast and rake in situ from March to July. Thin out to about 4 inches apart. Successively collect the most tender tips and side shoots.
