Green Purslane Seeds Many Size Choices. Edible Super Salad Greens or S
"GREEN PURSLANE SEEDS! The edible plant.
We love this plant in salads, and cannot understand why it is still considered just an invasive species. Goes great with ranch dressing or home made Italian dressing. Can be used in soups for added flavor dimension, or as a thickener. This is a very nutritious plant!
Purslane is high in Omega-3 fatty acids and contains vitamin A, vitamin C, vitamin B, magnesium, calcium, potassium and iron. All in all, edible purslane is a very healthy plant to add to your diet.
Small blossoms are open only for a day. Portulaca oleracea, (poor-two-LAY-ka oh-ler-AY-see-a) whose name means â€œmilk-bearing cultivated plantâ€ or â€œlittle door cultivated plantâ€ is a native of India and the Middle East, but is naturalized throughout the world. Sediment deposits in Canada strongly suggest it came to North American before Columbus, either with Leif Erickson and raiding party, or earlier with humans from Asia to Alaska. It is found as early as 7th century BC in Greece, and Greek texts from the fourth century BC say itâ€™s a plant no respectable Greek kitchen garden, or medicine cabinet, is without. Theophratus called it â€œandrÃ¡khneâ€ â€” which might mean â€œman w#dâ€ (W#d is now a bad word in the USA, our listing can be flagged)â€¦ any ancient Greek experts can correct me â€” and said April was the best time to plant it. Slightly sour and mucilaginous â€” thatâ€™s where â€œmilk-bearingâ€ comes in â€” purslane can be used in salad to soups to omelets. The stems can be pickled.
Purslane seeds take seven to 10 days to germinate between 70 and 90 degrees Fahrenheit. You can sow seeds 1/4 to 1/2 inches deep directly in the garden. Spring is the best time to plant purslane from seed. In areas with even mild frost in winter, wait until the last frost date has passed and the soil has warmed to at least 70 F before planting. In mild, frost-free climates, you can plant in late winter as long as the soil temperature is high enough for germination to occur."
