(Miner’s lettuce) During the California gold rush miners ate this wild green to avoid getting scurvy. We now know that the leaves are very rich in vitamin C. The succulent heart-shaped leaves have a fresh water chestnut-like taste and can be eaten raw in salads or cooked like spinach. It is a cool season crop that does best in the early spring or in autumn, and can be sown successively for multiple crops. Quick and easy crop.
