Do you have this wonderful little succulent growing in your garden ``` There are strains of pearpear growing wild here in the U.S. of A ```


I have the the Red growing here in the greenhouse ~ and a common strain is growing here also ~ I found that ( the common ) growing through a crack in the sidewalk in the bay area ``` 




They call it Purslane in the west ~ what ever it's title ~ it is very good for us ```


I can't spell our word for it in English or Armenian ``` 


There are sites on the internet telling of the nutritional value and the human diseases it cures and/or prevents ~ I won't post them here ~ I leave it to you ~ if you are interested to google "Purslane"




Daddy use to grow pearpear by the berry vines where it remained damp ~ Mama cooked it like spinach ~ we loved it ~ I still do ~ great in salad as well ```


I could be convinced to send a few seed of the "Upright Red " if you're in need ~ PM ```


I had ~ and lost ~ the "Upright Green" because I was an esh and didn't collect the seed a while back ~ but that's another story ```
