The Mushroom Plant

This low growing perennial herb gets its name from the mushroomy flavoured leaves. The leaves and stems are eaten raw in salads or they can be cooked as a green vegetable in stir fries. The leaves are rich in chlorophyll. Leaves contain 3% protein, they are also very high in calcium, a richer source than most foods.

I read about this plant, excited for more leaves for a good harvest. Bought it at masters hoping it will grow well.

Took a little while to establish, but lots of new growth despite plenty of leaf harvesting.  Great plants.  They don't like to dry out, or too much sun.  Have an inch of mulch on the surface to help with water retention.
