5741Re: [pfaf] Sedum Acre
- Aug 1, 2011I´ve already tasted s.acre and besides it´s so hot that it hurts my
mouth I´m not sure wether it also hurts the stomach.
But s.rupestre you can eat in quantities without a problem. It´s very
vital on our sandy soil, a successful groundcover and perfectly
wintergreen in zone 7. Raw it tastes strong an interesting, decently
astringend, cooked it´s very mild.
greetings from Steph
