Purslane - Green

         
 
19 Reviews | Write a Review
 
 
(Portulaca oleracea) Low, crawling plant produces tender stems and juicy leaves that are excellent added to salads. A popular green in Mexico that was favored by my Hispanic grandmother. Also used in herbal healing plans. (CAUTION: Purslane may be poisonous to some livestock types when consumed in excessive amounts.)

Review:

Steam or boil with some water until soft, but not too soft. Drain and let it cool a bit. Put in a bowl and mix with lots of minced garlic. Put in a jar and add some good red wine vinegar until almost covered. Keep in the fridge- keeps a long time and enjoy with food as a relish. DELICIOUS AND NUTRITIOUS !

Review:

This plant grows very well in my mid-Missouri garden. It does spread like wildfire (which isn't a problem for me), and tolerates heat well. I love to include these greens in a crisp salad, or in fresh pestos. I love that they are so full of nutrition.

Greenhouse volunteers

What are the pros? prolific volunteers

What are the cons? flavor of non-Baker volunteers

Review:

Like many other growers' experience, these have 'naturalized', or invaded, many nooks & crannies in our Greenhouse. Fine with me. One writer says they attract 'hoppers. Sometimes ours have been decimated by field mice that seem to know what's good for 'em. They're easy to learn to recognize as volunteers and easy to pull if you want to. Our non-Baker origin volunteers have been PE-like bolt-o-matics in 125F summer daytime greenhouse temps. The seeds are super easy to collect and save. Gonna have to bone up on Purslane crossing, we may not really be able to 'replace' our ubiquitous volunteers with a tastier Baker Creek strain ;-)

Review:

I had watched an episode on a famous Dr. Show who recommended Purslane as a great green with many dietary benefits. Seemed like a great thing when I was it was available here where I buy all my seeds. I selected a spot in my raised beds and was quite pleased when it took off rather easily. (A sign to be sure) No one really liked the flavor so it didn't get consumed and I pulled it out to make way for other greens of our liking. Sadly this little devil propagated Everywhere. I have been pulling it up for 3 years now and I think it's finally under control. Steer clear of this one.

Review:

This little plant will keep you well fed, and thus makes a great addition to any homestead. Once it gets going it's super prolific! I planted in a large (4 foot across) raised bag bed along with some bush beans to keep it contained. The beans don't seem to mind a bit, but I've been keeping it trimmed low for now to make sure they don't compete. Which leads me to my next point: the harvests. Cut a stem close to the base, just above the bottom leaves, and within a few days the little leaves will have grown out into full size stems of their own. It's June here in SC, almost too hot now for lettuce, but I'm confident the purslane will keep us in fresh greens all throughout the summer. When you consider the health benefits ascribed to purslane: rich in heart healthy omega-3s, strong anti-inflammatory properties, as well as CoQ10, glutathione, dopamine, and melatonin which can help regulate sleep and inhibit cancer growth - it's a win, win, win.
