Miners Lettuce is another valuable foraging herb to have in your maara (garden).

It got it's name when gold miners ate it to get their vitamin C to prevent scurvy!

Miner's lettuce was so important as a source of Vitamin C that the British planted it in Cuba and, later, in Australia.

It is refreshingly crunchy, mild-tasting, has large leaves, remains tender even when in flower, and is so loaded with vitamins!

It is high in vitamin C, A, calcium, omega 3, iron, beta-carotene, and protein.
100 grams of miner's lettuce—about the size of a decent salad—contains 30% of your daily requirement of Vitamin C, 22% percent of the Vitamin A, and 10 percent of the iron.

It is known to cleanse the body and provide energy for the liver and lymph system.
Alongside cleavers, it's a great spring cleanse for the body, popping up from the earth to provide us with free super chlorophyll-rich energy.

It can be eaten as a leaf, raw in salads and sandwiches, added to omelettes and also boiled like spinach. It's a must-have staple for winter salads for our whanau!

Once you have Miner's Lettuce, you'll have it forever, as the tiny seeds will grow again each winter without fail.

Organically grown in a recycled or compostable pot.
