Seaweed on Land is an unusual salad addition with branched spikes of fleshy bright green crunchy leaf stems. Harvest early to keep stems tender. Plants prefer to grow in alkaline soils and cooler periods.
Requires a very sunny position in a light or medium well-drained soil, it tolerates salty soils, occasional inundation by salt water and maritime exposure. Succeeds in poor soils and grows more vigorously on alkaline soils.
Sow spring in situ.
Young leaves and stems - cooked. A crunchy tender texture.
