Mesembryanthemum crystallinum

Iceplant is an edible succulent type of plant that is often grown as an ornamental. The leaves are edible and are covered with shiny globules which have a delicious lemony flavour. The seeds are also edible and are reputed to have some medicinal properties. Iceplant is found in Japanese supermarkets where it is eaten raw, in salads, or used with dips. A soap substitute can be obtained by crushing the leaves and using them to wash ones hands clean. This plant grows in a wide range of soil and is tolerant of both acidic and salty soils. It makes a lovely ornamental groundcover and can be used for bio-remediation work. It grows to 1m wide and reaches heights of 30-40cm. The insect pollinated flowers open in the morning and close up at night. Sow the seeds in autumn about 1 cm deep do not overwater them. The plants will flower in spring and summer and often die out after flowering. They can become perrenial, in some areas, if the flowers are deadheaded and conditions are favourable.
