SALAD DANDELION

$3.50
In Stock


(Taraxacum officinale)  Bi-annual.  Originally from France.  Named after the French term 'Dent de Lion' meaning lions tooth referring to the jagged 'teeth' on the plant's leaves.  Large plant with green leaves formed in an attractive rosette shape.  Excellent for fresh eating as it doesn't have the bitter characteristic of some dandelion varieties.  Passed on to us by an enthusiastic Tasmanian grower who commented that 'For salad passionates it is a must have!'.   In cooler areas, plant dies back during winter to re-shoot again in Spring.  Use the young leaves in salads, older leaves as boiled greens, or spinach subsitiute. Roots can be roasted and used in place of coffee, or lifted and forced during winter, like Belgian Endive. 200 seeds
