Utterly delicious and not easy to find unless you live close to the coast, this wild plant of salty mudflats, marshes and the shoreline produces succulent tender shoots with a flavour reminiscent of asparagus, but a taste all of its own. Succulent stems which can be steamed to add an unusual flavour, specially good with fish. It is nothing short of an absolute treat - we love it! Instructions given! Note: germination may be erratic.
