-42% SALE! Golden Purslane (Portulaca Oleracea Sativa) 200 seeds (#1129)

Approximately 200 seeds in teh packet (for 2-3 square meters).
Though references often ascribe this species to many ornamental purslanes on the market, wingpod purslane is actually a low, spreading, warm season annual or short-lived perennial with small, five petaled yellow flowers. It is a widespread succulent weed across much of the world often used as an edible vegetable green. Leaves are small, flat and club shaped. The flowers produce hundreds of seeds that germinate readily to create more plants.
This plant is rarely cultivated but grows best in full sun. It is drought tolerant once established but requires average moisture to sustain healthy growth. Its roots grow quite deep, so these are easiest to remove with a weeding tool.
The leaves have a lemony flavor and are best eaten raw. They give a kick to salads, so try adding them to the dinner plate rather than tossing them in the weed bin.
After all danger of frost is past, sow seeds in fertile, well-drained soil in full sun, covering with 3-5 mm of soil. Provide water generously to facilitate germination and thin to 10-15 cm apart.
Once established, purslane can tolerate severe drought. Plantlets can be harvested when 4 to 5 leaves have formed, usually in about 20 days.
Once established, harvest can be continuous, picking to within 5 cm of the base. Regrowth will occur rapidly. Allow one plant to go to seed before frost and collect seeds from mature seed capsules for the next year.
