Agretti / Salsola – (Organic)


A leafy Italian delicacy, can be eaten raw or cooked. Agretti is a popular Italian leaf which is slowly becoming more popular in the UK particularly with chefs. Its flavour could be described as ‘chivey samphire’ and is slightly salty. It can be lightly steamed, stirred through pasta, or added raw to salads to add an interesting twist. The seeds are only viable for a few months – they are actually little plants not strictly seeds.


When to sow: Feb – March

Spacing: 30 x 30cm

Agretti tips: Sow in modules under cover in Feb-March or outside in April. Germination can be erratic and patchy taking 7-21 days so always sow more than you need to. Best harvested while plants are young.
