Fast growing with large, fleshy leaves, golden purslane has a nutty, peppery flavour and is salty on the tongue, adding a welcome contrast to plainer salad leaves. This ancient crop can be used raw in salads, sautéed as a side dish or cooked like spinach. Purslane can even be used as a substitute for okra. Rich in nutrients and omega-3, purslane can be used in the same way as spinach, both raw and cooked.
Each packet contains roughly 1500 seeds.
