Before eating any wild plant be 100% certain it is what you think it is. Purslane plants are edible and full of vitamins and really delicious if prepared right. The variety most often eaten is common purslane with fat succulent foliage and yellow-orange flowers but any variety is tasty and full of nutrients. But do not eat anything unless you are 100% sure what it is. This article may help:
