Crystal Leaf Ice Plant [56160]

Crystal Leaf Ice Plant

Mesembryanthemum crystallinum

Something a little different for all those brave enough try is this Crystal Ice Plant that makes a crunchy, tangy, salty snack!

Pop the raw leaves into salads or stir-fry, as the leaves remain crunchy even with heat.



Usually grown as an ornamental with its succulent leaves that look as though little ice crystals are forming all over them, it has the added bonus of being edible.
