(Taraxacum officinale) Perennial. A sophisticated French play on the immensely nutritious wild dandelion. Dandelion is highly nutritious and contains potent antioxidants. The potential health benefits are incredible, from weight loss to healthier cholesterol, with studies claiming dandelions’ cancer fighting abilities. Use the young leaves in salads, older leaves as boiled greens. Roots can be roasted and used in place of coffee, or lifted and forced during winter, like Belgian Endive. We’re proud to offer this European strain of a traditional old favorite!
Minimum Seed Count: 150
