Golden Purslane

         
 
3 Reviews | Write a Review
 
 
Annual, 35 days. The same upright habit and large, tender, succulent leaves as our green purslane, but this variety comes in a peppy, bright yellow green. So lovely in the garden or in your freshly picked salad! Purslane has the highest concentration of healthy omega-3 fats of any crop, and is rich in anti-oxidants as well. Leaves are sometimes pickled for storage. (CAUTION: Purslane may be poisonous to some livestock types when consumed in excessive amounts.)

What are the pros? size, quick maturity

What are the cons? none

Review:

This is my first experience with cultivated purslane, having previously relied on the wild. Its upright habit and the size of the leaves makes me think I might plant it as a spinach substitute next year. With my most recent harvest to include some leaves in that night's salad, I noticed the stems were about the same diameter as the green beans I's be steaming, do I cut them to length and steamed them as well. Even the stems tasted good.

What are the pros? Taste

What are the cons? Died off on me

Review:

Sowing tiny seeds like these is never easy, but when I planted (March 1, zone 8b) I got very good germination which was a pleasant surprise. I thinned out some of the sprouts, and those left grew pretty well up to about 2" tall. Then they started dying off. I have had nematode issues in the past, but the roots showed no signs of nematode damage, so I'm not sure what's going on. I don't have much left as of 5/1, and haven't gotten a harvest. I'm going to replant and see what happens. Everybody says these are an unkillable weed, but I'm having difficulty keeping them alive.

What are the pros? Taste

What are the cons? Attracts Grasshoppers

Review:

My chickens loved the grasshoppers that it attracted. My whole family loved the tender taste of the Purslane. We used it as an additive to our salad for an extra flavor. I used seed from last year's crop to grow again this year (2014)and it produced a huge load. So, after two years I will replant again.
