(Portulaca oleracea) Low, crawling plant produces tender stems and juicy leaves that are excellent added to salads. A popular green in Mexico and was favored by my Hispanic Grandmother. Also used in herbal healing plans.

Review:

I planted one of these a month ago. Today it is an impressive bush, almost two feet tall. This plant is almost as different from wild purslane as domestic radishes are from wild ones. The leaves on the wild ones are tiny and thick. The leaves on this plant are much larger in diameter but no thicker. This plant also grows to a much larger size than the wild version.

Tasty and too vigorous

What are the pros? Crisp, juicy, delicious leaves

What are the cons? Can be invasive, loved by deer

Review:

Very easy to grow, germinated pretty well. Can get quite large. The leaves, especially when young, are juicy, crisp and tasty. Makes a great addition to a salad, or on a sandwich or pita, or can be a side dish or salad on its own. However--can be invasive. Self-seeds vigorously and can pop up in places you would never expect. Succulent stems are easy to break and hard to dig out entire plant. Deer also love this plant, and I think the rabbits snack on it as well, so be forewarned!

Review:

Just beware, this can easily take over a garden if you aren't careful. Don't leave any behind, or it will reroot and become a weed.

Review:

This is my first time growing purslane, though we have foraged for wild purslane in the past. I'm glad I decided to purchase these seeds because the resulting plants were larger, tastier, and more tender than the wild stuff that grows around here. I broadcast the seeds around my summer squash seedlings and it has helped keep the weeds down and has thrived among the shady squash leaves. I love purslane saut?ed with corn, in the Mexican style. I will grow this again and again.

Review:

I had a shaky start with this seed, I think I was overwatering, and not providing enough light, so my initial seedlings were leggy. I changed location, and watered less, and it has now begun to grow well in my Tropical (Thai) climate, even during rainy season. It is hardy, growing strong and I'm even beginning to get self-setting seedlings! I love the taste too. It melts in the mouth! An old-fashioned salad ingredient that is full of magnesium (apparently!) I really recommend this plant!
