Edible succulent annual or tender perennial/annual.  It has been grown for its leaves as snack to eat them raw or with some seasonings.  Or like in Japan the plants have been made to vegetable salt as a product.  Easy to grow in full sun warm climate in salty soil.   Or water them with salt water.  Easy to propagate from seeds. Small white daisy like flowers in summer.  Mature plant size:6-8cm(H) X 60-120cm(W).  Seeds germinate temperature in between 15C to 20C.  Plants are best growing in between 25C to 30C.   Good to start the seeds in 6 weeks before summer.   USDA Zones:10+. Propagate by seeds or cuttings.

又稱為冰葉日中花,番杏科日中花屬的多肉一年生草本或壽命短的多年生. 常被種來當生食用的葉菜/蔬菜零食或當成蔬菜鹽(因其含鹽高,有鹹味).容易栽種在全日照處的含鹽土壤中.  或溫暖地區以普通土壤種植但以鹽水來澆灌培養. 容易以種子來繁殖.  夏開白色小菊花似的花朵.  多低矮但橫向生長,故成熟株高僅6-8公分,寬幅可達2-4呎.  種子發芽適溫為15-20度C之間. 植株最佳生長溫度則為25-30度C. 喜熱不耐寒.  繁殖方式以種子或扦插來進行.
