Samphire

This coastal plant is related to Saltbush and Seaweed and a relative of this plant is widely used throughout Europe as a vegetable. Samphire naturally grows in salty mudflats and saline estuaries, where it clumps to create a thick matt. This grey/green, segmented succulent perennial is closely related to the inland Rock Samphire.

At Reedy Creek Nursery, Samphire is organically cultivated in growing boxes of composted seaweed. This sustainable production of Samphire can guarantee availability of tender tips from Spring to Autumn.

Uses: This Aussie Sea Asparagus can be used steamed, stir-fried or blanched. Is a great complement to seafood dishes.
