Goldberg Golden purslane

Portulaca oleracea
HOW TO GROW PURSLANE

Direct sow in spring or early summer, frost sensitive. Tap-rooted, tolerates poor compacted soil, drought, low maintenance. When harvested in the early morning, the leaves have ten times the malic acid content as when harvested in the later afternoon and thus have tangier taste. Self seeds and can form a think carpet, considered an invasive weed in agricultural crops. Difficult to remove once established. Can be propagated by cuttings replanted in moist ground. Surface sow, press into soil, do not cover. Soil pH 6.1-7.8. Hardiness zones 5-9. Annual.

Usual seed life: 5-40 years.

1½" leaves are much larger than the wild form of purslane. Upright growth habit. Flavor is crisp and mild. Pick as needed to within 2" of the base, new stems and leaves regrow. Cooks down quite a bit, pick more than you think you need. Purslane contains more omega-3 fatty acids than any other leafy vegetable plus vitamins A, C and B, calcium and iron. Good companion plant, provides ground cover and humid microclimate for neighboring plants. Tap roots bring up moisture and nutrients other plants can use. Some, including corn, will follow purslane roots down through harder soil they cannot penetrate on their own. Also known as pigweed, little hogweed, moss rose and verdolaga in Latin America.
