Growing Information

Saltwort

SOWING: Direct seed (recommended): Direct seed in spring through midsummer. Sow seeds 1/8- 1/4" deep, 1-2 seeds every inch, in rows that are 12-18" apart. There is no need to thin, as saltwort continues to grow even when sown thickly. Successive sowings ensures a continuous harvest.

LIGHT PREFERENCE: Sun/Part Shade.

SOIL REQUIREMENTS:
Saltwort is native to the salt marshes of Japan, but does fine in less saline soils.

PLANT HEIGHT: 8-18".

PLANT SPACING: 4-6".

HARDINESS ZONES: Annual.

HARVEST: Leaves may be harvested for fresh use once the plants have become established. Harvest promptly to avoid woody stems and prickly leaf tips.
