Low, crawling plant produces tender stems and juicy leaves that are excellent added to salads. Purslane is a powerhouse of plant nutrition, and considered one of the richest sources of omega 3 fatty acids in the plant world. This juicy and totally delectable succulent type plant adds dimension to dishes with its pleasing salty, slightly sour flavor. Appreciated as a potherb in Europe since antiquity, somehow purslane does not enjoy the same fanfare in America, which is a shame as the leaves contain the most vitamin A of any green leafy vegetable, and the culinary potential is boundless!  A popular green in Mexico that was favored by Jere’s grandmother, who grew up in Mexico.
