Portulaca Oleracea

StoryA beautiful, juicy salad/cooking green that is high in Omega 3 and vitamins A and C. Summer purslane is easy to grow, being more resistant to slug attack than lettuce, especially when plants are bigger. It is succulent, producing gorgeous and tasty leaves for salads throughout the summer. We highly recommend giving it a go.
