Oyster Leaf

1 Review | Write a Review
In 2010 Joe made a trip to Tranzault, France, there he met a rare vegetable collector who introduced him to this marvel of the vegetable world. The man asked Joe to taste this beautiful grey blue leaf and to Joe's shock and delight the leaf tasted exactly like a raw oyster! Joe was blown away by the importance of this plant and started searching to learn more about why it was not being offered on vegetable counters all over Europe and the states. The truth was even though this plant hails from Northern Europe, it is still almost unknown. Seeds are extremely hard to come by and only a handful of specialty growers now produce it. That said it is rather easy to cultivate, it likes alkaline conditions, a pinch of salt even helps the plants along (they grow on the sea coast in Northern Europe!) This plant prefers cooler climates and should do well even in the far north. We are extremely proud to have a very limited number of seeds to offer!

What are the pros? Is this seed stratified?

What are the cons? Already stratified or not?


From another site: This plant is a cold-germinator. The sowing must be kept cold for a period of some weeks (refrigerator) or you sow them in very early spring or autumn. Mix the seeds with damp sand in a plastic bag. The sowing must be kept warm (about 20?C / 64 to 72?F and moist for the first 2-4 weeks. After this period place it in your refrigerator at a temperature between 25 and 39?F for 5 to 6 weeks. After that take the bag out and keep it at room temperature. Check for sprouted seed regularly.
