Purslane, Munich (Organic)

Portulaca oleracea sativa. 50 days.

Munich Purslane is a summer salad green with great texture and heat tolerance. Not the weedy relative, this grows tall and sets seed late. It also has much better flavor compared to wild purslane. High in Omega-3 fatty acids, it adds a citrusy tang to summer salads. Its character seems to be somewhere between the common golden purslane and tall green types. A rare variety given to us by Pro Specie Rara, the Swiss seed preservation organization.

Geographical Origin

Direct-sow shallowly, 4-6” apart, when soil has warmed, May through August. May also be transplanted from late spring through late summer. Purslane is frost-sensitive, so make last sowing at least 8 weeks before first frost.

Seed Saving

Collect seeds from dry flowers before they shatter too much. Cut seedheads when dry, thresh by hand or by dancing, winnow or screen to clean. Easy to save seed, but the seeds are very small.

    Where did you grow this variety? Midwestern US

    I got this as part of a summer greens mix and this was by far my favorite green to eat! Very crisp! Very rarely bitter and beautiful glossy leaves. As a beginning gardener I thought it may be spinach at first, and while it is not spinach it is great to use in place of or with spinach as they’re cooked and eaten raw in the same ways. It also germinated better and grew faster than many of the other greens in the mix.
