Salicornia virginica (Pacific Samphire, Sea Asparagus, Virginia glasswort )

This is one of my favorite plants because it's super easy to identify and you can eat it! I've seen it for sale on Granville Island and it certainly isn't cheap.

I have a reference query as to whether sea asparagus can be cultivated - does anyone know?
