Description from Botanical Interests

Portulaca oleracea sativa

Item #6130

Annual. This domesticated purslane with large, succulent leaves contains vitamins A and C, a variety of minerals, and omega-3 fatty acids. Though similar to wild purslane in its high nutritional value, it is not your garden-variety Purslaneweed. Golden Purslane grows relatively tall for easier harvest, and its flavor is less tangy. A good container variety, and a fabulous way to expand your salad greens selection!

When to sow outside: 2 to 4 weeks after average last frost, and when soil temperature is at least 60ºF.

When to start inside: 2 to 4 weeks before average last frost.

Special germination instructions: Requires light to germinate – press seed into soil surface – do not cover; keep moist.
