What is a purslane?

Purslane is a vegetable.

With a mild, sweet-sour flavor and a chewy texture. Its reddish brown stem, creeps along the ground. The stalkless leaves are paddle shaped and as large as a pinky. It is a succulent, sprawling plant of lawns and a great ground cover.

Town has been serving purslane since their opening 4 years ago, as a great salad addition. Town gets their purslane from Ma'o farms and also from their own garden.

Let us persuade you to taste purslane.
