Italian Dandelion Heirloom Herb Seeds
An ancient herb that is both nutritious and medicinal. Known best as a weed, dandelion has an astonishing range of health benefits. Steamed like spinach, they have a pleasant "wild" flavor. Raw, they add bite to a salad. Frequently used in salads, sauteed or in egg dishes, this heirloom dandelion delivers a complex, bitter yet sweet flavor. Toothed basal leaves, deep taproot, golden flowers, all edible. As food or tea, the leaves are a potent diuretic high in potassium, replacing the potassium lost during urination. The leaves are also very rich in vitamins (A, C, D, and B) and minerals (iron, magnesium, zinc, potassium, manganese, copper, choline, calcium, boron, and silicon). Detoxifying herb--encourages steady elimination of toxins from both sickness and pollution. Roots dug for medicinal use and roasted as a coffee substitute. Young leaves good in mixed greens, both raw and cooked. Pick leaves when young before the plant blooms. Re-seeds aggressively-keep flowers picked. 80 days to leaf. 140 days for root harvest. Perennial.
