Crystalline grass (Mesembryanthemum crystallinum)




The crystalline herb belongs to the Aizoaceae family. It is native to the sandy and dry coastal regions of South Africa and, therefore, loves dry and sunny places and also tolerates salty soil. It is easy to grow and produces beautiful pink and white flowers in late summer.
Besides being an interesting ornamental plant, it is also an absolute rarity among salad plants. The slightly salty leaves appear to be covered in ice crystals and can be harvested every 3-4 weeks. It is advisable to collect only the tips of the shoots, so that the leaves can grow back. It has a crunchy texture and is perfect for use in salads or as a garnish. The leaves can also be lightly boiled.
