Sea Plantain Seeds - Plantago Maritima - Delicious & Perennial Leaf Vegetable
Quantity: 100+ Seeds
Species: Plantago Maritima
Hardy to Zone: 5-9
Sea Plantain is a relatively unknown vegetable; it’s a perennial member of the plantago family. The leaves taste delicious, and are very nutritious too. These plants have the ability to absorb salt from the environment, so can have a salty flavour when grown in certain soils; it definitely does when grown by the ocean. Because of this, the leaves are great for drying for later use as a salt replacement.
The plant grows to be about 1 foot tall, and equally wide. Even though sea plantain is typically found growing by the ocean, it grows very well in the garden; it just doesn't taste as salty, which can be a good thing. The leaves can be picked from early spring to late autumn, but taste best before or after going to seed.
All seeds are organic and open pollinated.
