Botanical Interests Organic Purslane Golden
Expand your salad greens selection. Crisp, mild, lemony flavor, perfect for summer salads.
This domesticated, non-invasive 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 weed. 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!

About Botanical Interests
Curtis and Judy met while waiting to interview for the same horticultural job and soon found they shared a boundless enthusiasm for gardening. Botanical Interests began out of their mutual passion and personal desire for better quality seed and more informational tools to help and inpire gardeners.
"We wanted a level of purity and quality that wasn't easy to find," recalls Curtis. So they searched out the highest quality seed available and began their business in 1997, in the spare bedroom of their Colorado home. The business objectives they established then still hold strong for them now: to inspire and educate gardeners; to provide high quality seed to their customers; and to create an enjoyable work place for employees.
Over the years, Judy and Curtis' family has grown along with their line of seeds which now attracts and pleases customers nationwide.
