About Purslane

Purslane is an annual and low height plant. There are two types of purslanes: garden purslane and wild purslane.

The stem of the garden purslane is straight and its height reaches thirty centimeters, but the stem of the wild purslane plant is creeping and spreads on the ground. The stems of the purslane generally are thick and pinkish red.

The leaves of this plant are small, relatively thick, fleshy, usually triangular, heart-shaped, and rarely oval. These leaves grow reciprocally without petioles.

The best purslane has large, fleshy leaves and a red stem.

Its flowers are small and yellow, and each has five heart-shaped petals that are completely separated from each other.

Its seeds are black, very small, circular, and slightly wide, and are in small green chambers. These chambers consist of two conical parts and are separated after they are fully ripened.
