Java Ginseng (Talinum paniculatum Gaertn.) is a succulent plant from the family Portulacaceae which can be consumed as vegetable. There were three main objectives for the research. Firstly,  to evaluate the growth of plants Talinum paniculatum (Jacq.) with the different levels of nitrogen and harvesting times. Secondly, to understand the level of nitrogen fertilizer on the largest biomass production. Thirdly, to know the harvesting weeks for the largest biomass production with the best quality. The combination treatment between the harvesting times of 8 wk and the manure 150 kg N ha-1 has effects on the plant height, the numbers of branches and leaves. The highest protein content was reached at 4 wks harvesting age with fertilization of 150 kg N ha-1  with significant difference in all treatments.
